That would be ideal.I wouldn't mind to use pkg-config, if I just knew how to get it going. Is pkg-config something gnome specific?It's trivial. pkg-config is part of freedesktop.org so its fairly agnostic. All that is required is to install a .pc fileJody, sorry for bothering you again. I just thought about a potential problem that occurs, if pxlib is availabe but doesn't have libgsf1 support. There seems to be no way to handle this with pkg-config except for creating two libraries and two .pc files for e.g. libpx and libpx-gsf. If I did the configurartion by myself, I would simply check for a function within libpx that uses libgsf1. pkgconfig doesn't appear to do a test compile but rather relies only on the information in the .pc file. Is there any clean solution beside the two library way?Not really. The fundamental issue always comes down to wether or not the functionality is there at run time too. Packagers get nailed if there are two versions of a library that claim to be the same but do not have the same symbols.
Ok, I'll see what I can do. Uwe -- MMK GmbH, Universitaetsstr. 11, 58097 Hagen Uwe Steinmann mmk-hagen de Tel: +2331 840446 Fax: +2331 843920
