Default DisplayLink driver fails to install

My configuration is Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS, kernel version 4.10.0-33-generic.
dkms has been installed.
Downloaded latest DisplayLink driver, unzipped, and executed
sudo ./displaylink-driver-1.2.65.run

Output was:
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing DisplayLink Linux Driver 1.2.65 100%
DisplayLink Linux Software 1.2.65 install script called: install
Distribution discovered: Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS

ERROR (code 3): Failed to build evdi/1.2.65. Consult /var/lib/dkms/evdi/1.2.65/build/make.log for details..

Contents of /var/lib/dkms/evdi/1.2.65/build/make.log is attached as log.txt

From this log file, it looks like the install procedure is finding something invalid about my configuration, but I don't understand the details of what it is saying.

Zip file as produced by SupportTool is also attached.

Default Works now.

Just saw the post about a newer version of the driver. I downloaded and installed it successfully. Thanks.
