I do that with consulting to:


but instead:

  $ ./configure --prefix=$PWD/.usr

and extract $PWD/.usr/bin/fvwm-menu-desktop for my needs.

I filed a bug:

    Replace fvwm-menu-desktop with upstream version (they rewrite from Perl to 
Python XDG library).

so hope some times I didn't do any manual actions to get fvwm-menu-desktop.

During ./configure I get:

  With GTK+ required for FvwmGtk?     no: Failed to detect GTK, see config.log

That is not required by my willing but I think I have all build prerequisites.

I think that corresponding config.log lines are:

  configure:13205: $? = 0
  configure:13205: ./conftest
  configure:13205: $? = 0
  configure:13220: result: yes
  configure:13245: checking for unsetenv
  configure:13245: gcc -o conftest -Wall -Wno-implicit-int -g -O2 
-I/usr/include/freetype2    conftest.c  -lfontconfig -lfreetype  >&5
  configure:13245: $? = 0
  configure:13245: result: yes
  configure:13307: checking for gtk-config
  configure:13338: result: no
  configure:13347: checking for GTK - version >= 1.1.0
  configure:13469: result: no
  configure:13587: checking for imlib-config
  configure:13618: result: no
  configure:13627: checking for GDK IMLIB - version >= 1.8.0
  configure:13711: result: no

If you have no time don't investigate this issue, I just wonder.

Best regards!
