Note

If you have DocBook-utils installed and you remove the --disable-docs parameter from the configure command below, you must have SGMLS and JadeTeX installed also, or the Fontconfig build will fail.

Configuration Information

--enable-libxml2: use libxml2 instead of Expat.

Non-Multilib

Compile the package:

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --disable-docs --localstatedir=/var --without-add-fonts &&
 
make

Install the package

make install &&
install -v -m644 doc/*.3 /usr/share/man/man3 &&
install -v -m644 doc/*.5 /usr/share/man/man5 &&
install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/fontconfig-2.8.0/fontconfig-devel &&
install -v -m644 doc/*.{html,pdf,txt} /usr/share/doc/fontconfig-2.8.0 &&
install -v -m644 doc/fontconfig-devel/* /usr/share/doc/fontconfig-2.8.0/fontconfig-devel

Command Explanations

--disable-docs: This switch avoids building the documentation (the release tarball includes pre-generated documentation).

--without-add-fonts: This switch disables the automatic search for X Window System fonts which, if found, may confuse some applications.

--with-docdir=/usr/share/doc/fontconfig-2.8.0: Though this parameter seems counter-intuitive following the preceding parameter to the configure command, it is used so that if the builder removes the --disable-docs parameter, the documentation will be installed in a versioned directory name instead of the default /usr/share/doc/fontconfig.

Multilib

32Bit

Compile the package:

USE_ARCH=32 CC="gcc ${BUILD32}" PKG_CONFIG_PATH="${PKG_CONFIG_PATH32}" \
./configure --prefix=/usr \

make

Install the package

make install

./configure --prefix=/usr \
    --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --disable-docs --without-add-fonts \
    --libdir=/usr/lib32 &&
make

Install the package

    --libdir=/usr/lib64 --with-freetype-config=/usr/bin/freetype-config &&
