So after adding the freetype2 lib,and others, i finally managed to get
gimp to compile and link.
But now there's a huge problem - it messes up my X server.
I start it up, the new installation dialog comes up with
[continue] [cancel] at the bottom...
and it has screwed up my mouse. The mouse does not respond properly any
more, even after I cancel out of the dialog using the keyboard.
Note that this is on a *vanilla* solaris 8 system, not one with my xinput
drivers. So this is a definate solaris compatibility problem, vs a tweaked
I'd be happy to help work through the problem, and submit patches, etc.
But I need a better idea of what to look at.
I have no idea what the heck could be messing up the mouse like that.
