configure: error: must have libshout installed!

The configure script exits with error stating libshout is not installed. I
have tried uninstalling libshout and reinstalling it. But it did not help. I
have also rehashed the shell before trying to install, so that the paths are
properly updated. Any help regarding the aboutve problem will be highly

With best regards
