[GnomeMeeting-list] Missing gconf-2.0 under Mac OS X


OK, so the advice was to try disabling the gnome part with
./configure --disable-gnome

and the list of packages recommended was:

Hello Alan,

The list that you gave only lists GNOME 1 related packages and
GnomeMeeting requires GNOME 2.

However, you can compile GnomeMeeting with a minimal list of
dependancies if you use --disable-gnome . It will remove some features,
you will have to tweak settings manually, but I think it is a good
Here is the list you need in that case :
GTK+ (GTK, Glib, Pango, ATK)  x
audiofile       x
esound          x
libxml2         x
GConf           x
ORBit2          x
linc            x
libIDL          x

(List contributed by Ronald Rael Harvest)

+ additional libs like SDL if you want fullscreen (if SDL is not
detected, it should remove the fullscreen functionnality, but I didn't
test that for long), and OpenLDAP

Of these, most could be fetched by fink except for linc (not listed) and libIDL (also not listed). I insalled the remaining ones, but ./configure --disable-gnome still failed after going further than it had before, with the message:

./configure: gconftool-2: command not found
Using config source  for schema installation
Using $(sysconfdir)/gconf/schemas/ as install directory for schema files
checking for pkg-config... /sw/bin/pkg-config
checking for gtk+-2.0 >= 2.0.6 esound >= 0.2.28 gconf-2.0 >= 1.2.1 libxml-2.0 >= 2.4.23... Package gconf-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gconf-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gconf-2.0' found

configure: error: Library requirements (gtk+-2.0 >= 2.0.6 esound >= 0.2.28 gconf-2.0 >= 1.2.1 libxml-2.0 >= 2.4.23) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

Note that the version of gconf available via fink is 1.0something, specifically:

status	name	installed	binary	stable	unstable	category	summary	
current gconf 1.0.9-1 1.0.9-1 1.0.9-1 gnome Configuration database system

So at least for the packages fetchable via fink, this still doesn't work.

Does anyone know whether the just-released version 2.2 of Gnome can be compiled or installed on Mac OS X (or Darwin) straight from the source?
