I'll work on that soon. Hello Douglas, the respective patch moves "Requires: x11 xext xpm" to Requires.private. That does not really fix the bug. pkg-config --cflags requires that not only Requires but also Requires.private are is resolvable (even when --static is not present) i.e. xext.pc would still need to be present. I think this would be the correct fix: - @echo 'Requires.private: x11 xext xpm' >> $@ + @echo 'Requires.private: x11 xpm' >> $@ + @echo 'Libs.private: -lext' >> $@ cu Andreas -- `What a good friend you are to him, Dr. Maturin.
