not to be enough, since my compilation now fails with:

I had exactly the same problem.
I don't know why but  the libosmocore provided by osmcombb couldn't be found...

I fixed the problem this way :

- Delete totally the osmocom-bb folder (which you clone from the repo)
- Download and install libosmocore and follow the instructions :
- Then, configure you PKG_CONFIG_PATH to aim at /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
- Then, clone obtain the sources of osmocombb and install :
