BUT making of gtkhtml-3.17.92 fails.

in the meantime i found out WHY:
the configure-script, or some part related to it has a bug.
it finds out, that i have the latest ïglib-2.15.6 installed
in /usr/local/lib but when it come to linking it links against the old
glib-2.14 installed in /usr/lib64!

Check the line which is used to assemble all libraries. If there is

how do i find this line?

-L/usr/lib64 or -L/usr/lib somewhere before the directory where your new
glib is, then you have a problem. Note that any library which calls glib

ïi searched all files in the gtkhtml-3.17.92-root-dir and found only few
text-files containing "-L/usr/lib64":

and in all those files i find this line
relink_command="... -L/usr/local/lib -L/lib64 -L/usr/lib64..."

so /usr/local/lib is BEFORE /usr/lib64.

BUT in the file libtool i found this:
# The library search path used internally by the compiler when linking
# a shared library.
-L/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.3/../../../../lib64 -L/lib/../lib64

and i think that is the point where it happens!
when you follow /usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.3/../../../../lib64
or /usr/lib/../lib64 you will go to /usr/lib64!

you are right!
thanks for pointing me into the right direction!

ok, so next time, i recompile evolution, i will change the libtool

but how should this system ever find something automatically
in /usr/local/lib?

needs to be recompiled: otherwise libtool finds the .la of such a
not-recompiled library and automatically pulls in the old glib at that

yes, i know that.
as i wrote in my first post, for that reason i recompiled all necessary
parts for running latest evolution:

libsoup and libbonobo compiled fine, only gtkhtml found the "wrong"

You can always fix the link line manually, but recompiling everything is
IMHO the only way to satisfy libtool.

i did that (see above).
