The short answer to that is "not necessarily". :-)

When you are trying to compile and link you code using a wscript, things are kind of more tricky. If you do not export the headers of one module and link them with the desired module in the right way, the compiler would not be able to find them.

I am not fully aware of all the dependencies of NLSR and, especially, of the protobuf dependency. I think that we used to use it more extensively before I joined UCLA, but for some reason we have almost abandoned it.

Probably, it would be useful for you to take a look at the way that we link some real applications that we have already ported to the simulator:
