[P4-dev] BMV2 in custom Dockercontainer - no thrift port

You didn't do ldconfig after installing Thrift so that may be the issue.
Maybe the bmv2 configure logs can shed more light as to why Thrift is not
If you do not want to use the Ubuntu-based docker container we provide, I
still recommend that you copy this Dockerfile to install all dependencies:
https://github.com/p4lang/third-party. You should be able to change the
base Docker image from Ubuntu to Debian in the FROM statement.
