i am attempting to build gimp from cvs. updating and typing "make"
failed with the following error message:
./configure: line 33395: syntax error near unexpected token `1.0'
./configure: line 33395: `GTK_DOC_CHECK(1.0)'
make: *** [config.status] Error 2
the next step for me (usually) is to reconfigure. i always send it a
few extra parameters, so i "./autogen.sh --help". this failed with this
checking for gtkdocize ...
You must have gtk-doc installed to compile The GIMP.
Install the appropriate package for your distribution,
or get the source tarball at
so i went to the mentioned web site and snarfed the tarball. to my
dismay, this is what i read about the new dependencies:
Perl v5 - the main scripts are in Perl.
DocBook SGML DTD v3.0 or DocBook XML DTD v4.1.2 - the DocBook DTDs.
Jade v1.1 or OpenJade 1.3.1 for SGML.
libxslt & libxml2 2.3.6 for XML.
DocBook DSSSL Stylesheets (I've got 1.40, but v1.19+ may be OK)
DocBook XSL Stylesheets
is it a real fact that i need jade to build gimp or perhaps i am doing
is it only specific to cvs builds and if so is it a temporary thing?
does it make sense that i need jade to work on images with a piece of
free software that is not as free as jade or open jade?
i would like to build gimp without this additional (and un-needed by me)
