[ndnSIM] New Ubuntu machine - new bizarre errors

By "./waf configure and ./waf inside the scenario template", I took that as
the ./waf inside my my-simulations directory, correct?
I performed the ./waf configure from inside there *after *doing a ./waf
install (from inside ns-3 directory), and I get the following:
jpbaugh at Janeway:~/ndnSIM/my-simulations$ ./waf configure
Setting top to :
Setting out to :
Checking for 'gcc' (C compiler) : /usr/bin/gcc
Checking for 'g++' (C++ compiler) : /usr/bin/g++

The configuration failed
(complete log in /home/jpbaugh/ndnSIM/my-simulations/build/config.log)
My obvious assumption is that it cannot find the ndn-cxx library. But I am
following the instructions by the letter. This is a fresh computer and a
fresh install, so what might be the issue here? And what is the best /
appropriate corrective measure, as I assume ndnSIM is already installed.
