This is my first post, so my apologies if this is going somewhere it shouldn't. Also, I'm a new convert (almost a week now), to freebsd and unix-in-general, so please correct me if you know I'm barking down the wrong path.
I'm trying to install xfce4.0r4. I'm using a source tarball. The unpacking (my first time!) went fine. I built the first package (utils) in xfce's Build Order (./configure, make, make-install, make-distclean). Everything seems fine. I un-tar the next app (gui) (which has a dependecy on the previous app), and run ./configure. It stops and tells me it can't find utils in pkg-config path - add the dir of utils to PKG_CONFIG_PATH. But the thing is, I used the default prefix (/usr/local) so I don't know why it doesn't know to look there. I checked my PKG_CONFIG_PATH (I'm using tcsh), but I don't seem to have that variable (at all) in my env. I tried "env -i PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig". It echoed the path back to me, but when I checked env, it wasn't there. Also, I can't find the util package in /var/db/pkg. Do I need to update it, and if so, how? I'm sure someone knows what's going on here. Please help a poor newbie out! _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
