I'm trying to configure liquidsoap and compile it from source. The ./configure process gets stuck at this point:

checking lo/lo.h usability... no
checking lo/lo.h presence... no
checking for lo/lo.h... no
configure: error: LO headers not found.

Now it's quite difficult to find out which lib or package is needed. I searched the package manager (aptitude from Debian) for lo but this is quite pointless. I also was asking google for LO headers but I was not getting much results.

What does lo.h belong to?

There should be a package called liblo-dev on Debian that should provide this header. Simply install it using apt-get or aptitude:

aptitude install liblo-dev
