Thanks. I also had to add /usr/local/include to CFLAGS for webcamd.c to compile.
Now that it is compiling however, it is requesting a firmware. I have
the firmware file, but don't know where it should go.
Also, are there any pointers on how to do simple things, like scan for
channels, tune and record a channel to a file etc.
