Hi Matteo,

This looks to be an upstream bug.

I built and installed the latest lz4 (1.7.5), but spice does not build with LZ4

Looking at config.log, I think I can see the problem:

  $PKG_CONFIG --exists --print-errors "liblz4 >= 129"

What has happened is: lz4 used to have plain numeric revs. The last of these was
131, released on Jun 29, 2015. After that, lz4 changed to x.y.z revision format,
starting with 1.7.3 released on Nov 17, 2016.

The proper fix is to spice-common/m4/spice-deps.m4:188, which should be expanded
to accept either >= 129 or >= 1.7.3.

But tomorrow I will try the effect of patching configure (it's getting late

Cheers ... Duncan.
