Ran into the same issues lately. The 'issue' is that so far, we could
specify --with-live555-tree=/path/to/live555.

The new configure check expects all the folders in /usr/include and does
not cater anymore for the mess it creates... So: either a bug in
configure (no, I won't patch it) or you have to change the installation
of live555 in your system, to get the various folders directly
beneath /usr/include and the static libs in /usr/lib|/usr/lib64.
