Re: [GnomeMeeting-list] compilation troubles

Hash: SHA1

I use a source based distro called Gentoo.  In Gentoo they have ebuilds which 
specify how a package is compiled and what it's dependencies are.  I mention 
this because gnomemeeting works just fine in Gentoo.  So if you really want 
it to compile, you could try reading the ebuilds.  I used to be a slack fan 
for about 4 years, but switched about a year ago.  I would check out how 
Gentoo gets around this loop if I were you.
