It's self-installed, see references to e.g.

The pc file is indeed found, as the log file
reports this:

This is the subsequent error:

"-lm" is missing.

It seems libopus is only available statically, and configure does not
realize that, or the opus.pc file does not provide "-lm" in

Kone, please add "--extra-ldflags=-lm" to your ./configure line, and
see whether that helps.

It might help, instead, to recompile your libopus with
"--enable-shared". It should have been the default though - it was for
my libopus.

Because he can. And it's good. (Well, I like it.)

Because he may want to use it?
