Re: newbie: building gnumeric

Chances are you are missing the *devel* packages for libbonobo and other

When I update after a while I work sequentially through these error
messages. Use 'rpm -qa'  ( rpm query all ) to get a list of packages
installed and then grep that list for libbonobo-2.0. e.g.

rpm -qa |grep libbonobo

on my machine (mandrake) this returns:


so then you can check that you have the right packages. If you don't,
get the packages you need.

I'm afraid you are going to have to work sequentially through these
messages after every ./ 

Sorry I won't be able to help you any more on this but others will
probably chip in. Good luck.

The configure command dies after saying:

Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libbonobo-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libbonobo-2.0' found

After some hunting around on the web, I found out about /usr/lib/pkgconfig 
and /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig. These dirs contain some .pc files, but not 
the ones gnumeric seems to be looking for.

Could someone point to a reference or something that explains how to 
install and configure this pkg-config stuff?
