Pkg-config problem at Xorg7.1 libs


Hi!
I'm fairly new to Linux, and just trying to compile my first LFS system.
So far everything went without a single problem.
Most of the time I just followed the book(s, LFS works fine, now working on BLFS 'instructions'), except I use BSD style bootscripts I wrote myself (with help from online resources, reading SystemV script which were provided by (B)LFS), and I use the PackageUser based package management as described in http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/hint...nd_pkg_man.txt .

Everything just worked the first time, guess I was lucky (and very careful all the time ;P )

Now I'm stuck on the very first configure in Xorg libs, namely libAppleWM-1.0.0.

Examing the logs i created via 2>&1 | tee -a ../mylog.log
I found that the check for APPLEWM failed (I installed Proto Headers).
Code:
checking for APPLEWM... configure: error: Package requirements (x11, xext xextproto to applewmproto) were not met:

No package 'x11' found
No package 'xext' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Now I found out that PKG_CONFIG_PATH is not set by issuing 'set' on the prompt. So I did 'export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig'. There I found applewmproto.pc, xextproto.pc, but not x11 or xext.

Does anyone have any idea why those are missing? Or what I can do to get them, or some other workaround.

Thanks in advance, and sorry for all misspells etc

Can't get no sleep
After googling some more I found that my mistake just might be the order in which I tried to do configure/make.
I found that

Code:
Xorg 7 
Libraries 

    * Automated Build Script

      bash -e
      for package in $(cat ../lib.wget)
      do
        packagedir=$(echo $package | sed 's/.tar.bz2//')
        tar -xf $package
        cd $packagedir
        ./configure $XORG_CONFIG
        make
        make install
        ldconfig
        cd ..
        rm -rf $packagedir
        rm -f $package
      done 2>&1 | tee -a ../xorg-compile.log

libAppleWM and libWindowsWM are dependent on applewmproto and windowswmproto, respectively. Also, the other library packages are dependent on one another and have to be installed in a certain order.
on LFS user wiki, and well, this Automated Build Script doesn't work all to well, the note below got me to read the dependency note on the same wiki. I'll try and configure/make in the order suggested there ( http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/blf.../Xorg7DepsLibs ) and report if it works.
Sorry for the redundant post, good night folks

wow.
That was more than 3 years ago, and I am sorry to say that I don't even remember what I did back then.

I think I solved this problem by compiling first those library which did not have any dependencies, and then moving on to more demanding ones.
So try to start with xtrans and alike, and then move up to the bigger libraries.

Good luck, cheers

Yes, that's it.
