Are you sure you actually have the HAL *development* files installed?
You need a libhal-dev on Debian/Ubuntu, and something like libhal-devel
on RPM distributions.

I've checked, and it only checks for a version superior to
0.5.10 - it doesn't require this precise version. If the previous
doesn't work, please paste the actual error you get. (BTW, you can play
with required versions by editing, changing the value of
LIBHAL_REQUIRED, and running ./ afterwards.)

Then, you can to grab David Zeuthen (davidz on IRC) to know what he
thinks, since he's the guy who wrote this application and did the HAL to
udev move.
