gtk / pango / autoconf problems

Hi all,

I am posting this here because this same issue came up on this list in a previous thread:

...but the recommended workaround in that thread isn't working, at least not for me.

I am attempting to build enough of gnome from the cvs repository to be able to play with librsvg. Unfortunately, I can't even succesfully build pango on my RedHat 7.2 system.

I have downloaded and installed the latest glib from the gnome cvs repository, and am using autoconf 2.52 and pkg-config 0.12.0, installed from sources.

For reasons I can't fathom, both my PKG_CONFIG_PATH and my ACLOCAL_FLAGS seem to be completely ignored:

bash-2.05$ echo $PKG_CONFIG_PATH
bash-2.05$ echo $ACLOCAL_FLAGS
-I /usr/local/gnome2/share/aclocal
bash-2.05$ grep AM_PATH_GLIB_2_0 /usr/local/gnome2/share/aclocal/*.m4
/usr/local/gnome2/share/aclocal/glib-2.0.m4:dnl AM_PATH_GLIB_2_0([MINIMUM-VERSION, [ACTION-IF-FOUND [, ACTION-IF-NOT-FOUND [, MODULES]]]])
bash-2.05$ ./ --prefix=/usr/local/gnome2
./configure: line 8943: syntax error near unexpected token `AM_PATH_GLIB_2_0($GLIB_REQUIRED_VERSION,'
./configure: line 8943: `AM_PATH_GLIB_2_0($GLIB_REQUIRED_VERSION, :,'

Has anyone else encountered this problem? Is there any systematic way to track down *why* my ACLOCAL_FLAGS seem to be ignored?

Any help would be appreciated. Please include me directly in the "To:" or "Cc:" line, as I'm not subscribed to this list.
