Usually, there is problem with dependencies. Are you sure you did install all required packages?
Furthermore, sometimes some developers don't really give exact package names one must have. For example, ELF web page says that building requires 'fribidi', when in reality it requires package named 'libfribidi-dev' ('dev' stands for 'development', meaning that it is the package for building other software; it has all headers and whatnot, normally not needed for running particular software).
If you can somehow, somewhere, post output of './configure', and post 'config.log' file (after you ran './configure'), perhaps I can help.
Note: to catch FULL output of './configure', please do:
$ ./configure > myconfigoutput 2>&1
('2>&1' will redirect stderr to the 'myconfigoutput' file, which will normally be filled with stdout only).
OK, in config.log, line 3046 it says:
Package xext was not found in the pkg-config search path.
$ apt-cache search xext html-xml-utils - HTML and XML manipulation utilities libxext-dev - X11 miscellaneous extensions library (development headers) libxext-doc - X11 miscellaneous extensions library (documentation) libxext6 - X11 miscellaneous extension library libxext6-dbg - X11 miscellaneous extensions library (debug package) libxmu-dev - X11 miscellaneous utility library (development headers) libxmu6 - X11 miscellaneous utility library libxmu6-dbg - X11 miscellaneous utility library (debug package) libxmuu-dev - X11 miscellaneous micro-utility library (development headers) libxmuu1 - X11 miscellaneous micro-utility library libxmuu1-dbg - X11 miscellaneous micro-utility library (debug package) libocamlbricks-ocaml-dev - Miscellaneous utility functions in OCaml for Marionnet x11proto-xext-dev - X11 various extension wire protocol
So, you should install one of '*-dev' package. Looking at the ELF web page, you should install 'libxext-dev' package.
(I wonder how much more '*-dev' packages will be missing ...)
Therefore, that's the way you can go ... Of course, there is probably more clever way, as 'porkpiehat' said in the topic you linked. (I do not know if this works ... didn't tried.)
Installed and got this:
checking X11/Xatom.h usability... yes
checking X11/Xatom.h presence... yes
checking for X11/Xatom.h... yes
checking X11/Xutil.h usability... yes
checking X11/Xutil.h presence... yes
checking for X11/Xutil.h... yes
checking X11/extensions/Xrender.h usability... no
checking X11/extensions/Xrender.h presence... no
checking for X11/extensions/Xrender.h... no
configure: error: OpenGL XLib dependencies not found
I am now installing
because they are on that list and they are not installed

Searching in geany for "error" is tedious
what did you do to find the not installed package so fast?

A suggestion: please, remember what packages you have to install, and when you are done with successful ELF compilation, please post the list here. It will sure help other users who are trying EFL ...
Thanks in advance.
