I found the missing files. Debian developers have split the original 'e2fsprogs' into all of these packages:
It's that last one that has the libuuid development files. The fix applies to the Debian and Ubuntu builds.
It was the inconsistent pkg naming that threw me. If there is a pkg 'libss2' then the usual thing Debian people do for the dev component is to name it something like 'libss-dev'.
