Re: [Ekiga-list] expat support for ptlib

As suggested I checked for duplicate ptlib ( using synaptic package manager).  For some strange reason it is showing only libpt2.10.4 and libpt-dev as installed.  There is no ptlib-2.10.9 according to synaptic.  It is as though the entire install I did of ptlib 2.10.9 vanished!  So I repeated the ptlib2.10.9 again just now using the following steps:
1. downloaded ptlib-2.10.9.tar.xz from ekiga site
2.  extracted to get the folder ptlib-2.10.9
3.  opened terminal; cd to folder ptlib-2.10.9
4.  ./configure --prefix=/usr
sudo make install
5.  all the steps seem to have gone without any error (at least none that I could see).
6.  Checked again using synaptic.  Lo and behold it still shows only libpt2.10.4 and libpt-dev as installed!No sign of 2.10.9 anywhere!

What am I doing wrong?

Maybe you have two ptlib installed: one with and the other without expat
support, and configure gets confused.  Could you check that?
