Re: Include glib into mc distribution?


Let me exlain my point.
I am working on quite a few Unix machines: AIX, HP, Solaris.
Some of them are here in NJ, some in TX.
I never met the sysadmin in TX, the sysadmin here in NJ is also the head of
local IS departmemt which means he is a very busy person.
I don't have root access to any of those machines.
If I want to install mc on any of those machines using binaries which I
downloaded from the inetrnet I have to ask  a sysadmin to install THREE
packages - mc, glib and libintl.
You can imagine what they say if I would ask them to do so!
But I am sure I could convince them to install just ONE package - mc, which
includes all packages.
So my only option is to build all myself , which is again a hassle - I have
to build all three packages in my home directory instead of just one.
I am sure there are many people around in similar situation and many just
give up on using mc.
