Re: need help in some points to get gnumeric 'long' mature. introspection, GDA support, GNOME-DB support, Psiconv, PDF documentation.

I've been trying to get gnumeric 'long' out of the 'experimental'
state for some time now, 
and have come quite far. To make this round I still need help with
some peripheral points, 
see the result of my configuration log attached at the bottom of this
TIA for any help!! 
- Introspection - I don't know this and can't handle it, with
'double' builds all 5 tests t-300x hold, 
with long t3000, t3001 and t3004 fail, logs also copied below. I need
tips on what this can be, 
or how introspection is normally / manually used and how I can narrow
down the fails. 

GObject Introspection does not support long double as far as I know, so
you most probably need to choose between introspection and long double.

- GDA support - libgda is criticized already by 'double' builds in
the configuration - see attached - as 'libgda problem', 
I tried to install it with apt-get: 
└─# apt-get install libgda-5.0-dev  
    ->  libgda-5.0-dev is already the newest version (5.2.10-2).
└─# apt-get install libgda-6.0-dev
    ->  E: Unable to locate package libgda-6.0-dev
and manually acc. 'linuxfromscratch', two issues: 
-- gnumeric requires version 6.0 ( shows up somewhere in the logs ),
this is only supported 
by a few distributions, see
<> and 
-- manual installation and build fail because the README says:
'Please note that if you use the Git 
repository the INSTALL file doesn't exist before you run the script. alas I can't find an in the repo ... :-(   Who has a working installation or
can give hints how I could get to one. 

libgda uses meson, read if
you don't know how to make it run. Be certain to build wit ui support
otherwise libgda-ui will not be built. Note that the debian package
misses it.

- GNOME-DB support - is about the same? if not please tell me what I
have to do to activate it. 

This is obsolete and should be removed

- Psiconv support - what is it and what do I need to do to get rid of
'missing dependencies'?  

This is for Psion file format support. Not sure it is still very
useful. You need to install it from sources, apparently not provided by

- PDF documentattion - how do I 'request' this, DBLatex had some
installation difficulties.
