Make sure you have the Avahi and D-Bus headers installed while you
build PA, otherwise libpulse-browse will not be available. 

Note that I don't recommend users to build PA themselves. This is
clearly a job for the distributors since it requires integration into
a the system at a lot of different places.

Finally, note that padevchooser is considered obsolete. It is badly
broken and unmaintained. Don't use it.
