Oh, it's not that bad.
Mick, you'll need to modify the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and PKG_CONFIG_PATH
environment variables. The configure script relies on those
environment variables to figure out what's installed and where things
Say you install glib 2.10 to /opt/local. The glib libraries will be
in /opt/local/lib. The pkg-config files for glib will be in
/opt/local/lib/pkgconfig. So, you'd set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to be
/opt/local/lib and PKG_CONFIG_PATH to be /opt/local/lib/pkgconfig.
(Example using bash shell)
Then when you run the configure script for atk, it should find the
glib that's in /opt/local and not know about the other one that's
This is the reason I suggested jhbuild. It handles installing almost
all of the dependencies and it will set up the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and
PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variables for you as well (when you're
within the `jhbuild shell` environment).
Yes but what about run-time dependencies on things like the gconf daemon ?
