ELM327 Clone Scantool !.1.5 FTDI USB interface

i am running Ubuntu Linux 12.0.4 (kernel 3.5.0-23 generic) on a Dell Latitude D630 (dual core intel @2.33Ghz w/4 Gb memory), dual boot with Vista business. The clone OBDII reader initially had quality issues( poor solder joints on the top of the PC board), but is now identified by the laptop (it recognizes the FTDI interface chip). I should say that Linux sees the chip, but the scantool software wants a straight serial interface only. I have tried compiling dzcomm0.9.9i from source and it configures with errors (says "execute make depend first" - not a valid command ) and will not make. Downloads/dzcomm/dzcomm$ make
rm -f makefile.dep

./src/queue.c: In function ‘queue_put_’:
./src/queue.c:79:9: error: ‘fifo_queue’ has no member named ‘fill’
make: *** [obj/unix/dzcom/queue.o] Error 1
Allegro is installed (with apt-get install), and the 1.2.1 version of scantool worked properly with it, but that version is not open source, so I can't tweak it to work with the clone. There is a patch available for dzcomm to work with usb , but that keeps asking which file to patch and I have no idea which file it wants. I have tried numerous published fixes and nothing works what am I doing wrong???
