Re: pkg.m4 missing in pkg-config v0.28 tool download for GTK+ 3.x on win32

You are right, 3.10 was missing. I just updated and uploaded it. You'll find it at the previously given URL.

Hello Tarnyko,
Many thanks to your great work on making Gtk3 available on Windows.
I need your help to build the 3.10 version of Gtk for a management software of
a Optical fiber project for my is very hard to compile glib2.38 
could you help me please? some suggestion 

Although GTK+ 3.10.x has already been built, and you can find binaries of it by searching some of the links available here, it still has some problems. That's why the official downloage page only lists 3.6.4. For a more detailed view of what still needs to be done : Please be aware or this if you decide to use the binaries. If you want to build it yourself, you may look at . Regards,

  Thank you both for your explanations.  A new "pkg-config-dev" package is now available on (and win64.php). It contains pkg.m4 and the man page, just as the previous version did.  I will modify the buildenv to regenerate this package in the next builds.

On the Windows 32-bit download page

Two download options are available: Tool or Sources. The Tool
option links to This does not
contain share/aclocal/pkg.m4, as it should in my opinion. The
only way to obtain pkg.m4 is from the Sources link.

In fact, the all-in-one bundle does contain pkg.m4. I never checked
before, but is this file necessary (besides GLib and other
dependencies) for pkg-config.exe to execute correctly ? If it is, I
agree it should be in the package.

pkg.m4 is needed if you regenerate the configure script from by using autotools. 

Yes. pkg.m4 is not used to build pkg-config.exe. Instead, it's a
system-wide macro file that provides the integration between
pkg-config and Autotools. 
Typically software packages are distributed so that to build them, you
just run ./configure then make etc. You don't need pkg.m4 for this. 
However, some packages are distributed such that as part of the build
process, autoconf has to be run on part or all of the package. In this
case, you need pkg.m4 to be present. 
Compare the contents of the pkg-config version 0.26 Dev download under
GTK+ 2.x with the contents of the pkg-config version 0.28 Tool
download under GTK+ 3.x. The former includes pkg.m4 and a man page,
the latter does not.
