This is exactly why I suggested that it should go in INSTALL.REPO, because pkg-config is a dependency of ./bootstrap as well as of ./configure. ./configure itself will issue a reasonable error if pkg-config isn't installed, but ./bootstrap will only produce the mysterious failure that Ralph noted. (I wouldn't object to it being documented in INSTALL.extra too.) -- Colin Watson [cjwat...@debian.org]
