[dnsdist] Compiling with DNS-over-QUIC on OpenSUSE - quiche not found

Hi, everyone,

I wanted to do some testing with the new DNS-over-QUIC implementation in 
dnsdist on my OpenSUSE machine. Quite understandably, OpenSUSE does not 
ship alpha versions of dnsdist, so I opted to compile the new version 
from source.

I looked through the code to find out dnsdist uses Cloudflare's Quiche, 
which is also missing from OpenSUSE's repositories, and they do not seem 
to provide any good way of installing it from source into the system. 
Dnsdist contains a 'builder-support/helpers/install_quiche.sh' script, 
which runs successfully (or at least never complains about anything), 
but when I run './configure.sh --enable-dns-over-quic', I get the 
following message:

configure: error: DNS over QUIC support requested but quiche was not found

Is there something I'm missing here? Is it just some strange behaviour 
on OpenSUSE's side?

Kind regards,
