Ok so I got LibFII to work, but I'm still having trouble with other packages- trying to get Pango and I'm met with the following error on ./configure:
checking for CoreText availability... no
checking for CAIRO... yes
checking which cairo font backends could be used... none
configure: Disabling cairo support
configure: error: *** Could not enable any backends.
*** Must have at least one backend to build Pango.
I have libcairo2 and libharfbuzz0- when I tried to sudo-apt get install both of them, it said they were up to date, so I have no idea what else it could mean by back-end???
Also, when I try to install gdk pixbuf, it says that I need a version of GLib which is higher than 2.36, but the version I compiled and make'd was version 2.4...
Requested 'glib-2.0 >= 2.37.6' but version of GLib is 2.36.0
