yeah, i started keeping personal readme's in every directory so when i
go to upgrade a package i know what i hacked in the last one to get it
Just because it might help someone, i'll go ahead and list the top
couple problems i've had compiling gnome on solaris:
1- NONE of the tools that rely on the image or compression libs (libpng,
libjpeg, libtiff, libbzip2, etc) find the libs/headers correctly in
i just symlink all the headers/libs into the src directory, and/or
change configure to use #include "header.h" not #include <header.h>
2- xml-i18n-* tools all throw errors on a line like:
Error in option spec: "help|h|?"
fixed by finding line with "help|h|?" and removing the "|?"
3- libtool is wacked in some packages... i just use the one from esound
4- some projects run link with -s -f, which doesn't work on solaris...
this is non-trivial to fix.
if it makes you feel better, i DO have gnome compiled and running very
well, so it does work, even if a little annoying....
