Note

Pkg-config dependency is met when using CLFS Development (2.0) or later. Pass --with-internal-glib configure switch to configure if the host does not have Glib2 installed.

Optional

Non-Multilib

Compile the package:

./configure --prefix=/usr &&
make

Install the package

make install

Multilib

This package does not provide any libraries so only one installation is needed.

--with-pc-path takes the libdir out of the default search path for .pc files. See the Bash Startup Files for help setting up a environment for use with this.

64Bit

Compile the package:

USE_ARCH=64 CC="gcc ${BUILD64}" ./configure --prefix=/usr --with-pc-path=/usr/share/pkgconfig &&
make

Install the package

make install
