I am getting a bit further, but have had to install glib in a 'standard' location
(i.e. under /usr/local) rather than the test area I was using. The 'pc' file
for glib seems to be glib-2.0.pc by the way, and is OK.
Now when configuring GTK I get further, but it fails with
sh: gnome-config: not found
configure: error: Pango 1.2.0 and Xft backend is required for x11 target
Now, the installation document does say installation of FreeType2 is a prerequisite,
and I've managed to install this. It also mentions 'PangoFT2', and I am wondering
if this is what is missing. I have not managed to find a download for this, so I don't
know if its part of another package.
Could someone help me find 'PangoFT2' ?
