I would like to point to that localstatedir problem which I have been
reporting a few times on the scrollkeeper ML over the last few years. It
has been confirmed to be a problem but never fixed.

./configure --prefix=/usr/local --localstatedir=/usr/local/var

Creates a /usr/local/var/lib/scrollkeeper dir after installation of

Now when installing a different package say (as good example)
gnome2-user-docs which then runs scrollkeeper-update a new directory is
being created where all the processing is done.


But from my investigations these things has to go into


This problem can be easily reviewed and happens all the time. I would
pretty much recommend to finally fix this if possible because I have
given up hope this to happen after the few years of reporting it. My
personal own solution is to:

cd /usr/local/share/var
ln -s lib/scrollkeeper scrollkeeper

To make scrollkeeper-update 'somehow' work in the same directory. It
would be nice if any 'jhbuild', 'cvsgnome' or other selfcompiler people
could confirm this.
