Apparently, compiling linux/serial.h on your platform requires some extra

If you look thru config.log you will see the section of code that runs to
figure out if linux/serial.h is present and compilable.

If you can figure out what other headers are needed to run that test without
complaint I can add them to the test for this header in configure.ac
