BLFS ,error: xproto package not found while compiling makedepend-1.0.4
I have started with X windowing system , i have installed util-macros and xorg protocol headers .
I went further to install makedepend-1.0.4 but i see the following error:
Package xorg-macros was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `xorg-macros.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'xorg-macros' found
checking return type of signal handlers... void
checking for rename... yes
checking for fchmod... yes
checking for special C compiler options needed for large files... no
checking for _FILE_OFFSET_BITS value needed for large files... no
checking for X... configure: error: Package requirements (xproto) were not met:
No package 'xproto' found
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively, you may set the environment variables X_CFLAGS
and X_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
For one: What did you choose as XORG_PREFIX? If you did not choose for /usr, did you also do the extra parts:
If you've decided to use the standard /usr prefix, you can omit the remainder of this page. Otherwise, be sure to add $XORG_PREFIX/bin to your PATH environment variable, and $XORG_PREFIX/lib/pkgconfig and $XORG_PREFIX/share/pkgconfig to your PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable. Issue the following commands as the root user
A general tip: Also have a look at the User Notes: that are on the pages. Some of them contain valuable information.
