no, that's the right one. But the `make` failed you again. It checks if
libftdi is available and silently ignores ft2232_spi if not (even if
explicitly asked to build ft2232_spi support in, pretty weird). Anyway,
the solution is simple, install libftdi along with it's development
package. Under Ubuntu this would be `apt-get install libftdi-dev`. Then
run the same `make` command again.

Hope that (finally) helps,
