Installing xerces-c, Help needed


Hi.
I'm trying to install the game "Glest", but when I'm doing a ./configure, I get this output:
Code:
checking for xerces... not found
configure: error: Please install xerces-c
How to install xerces-c?
I have been googleing and using the search function of this forum, but I haven't been able to find anything about it.
The distro is VectorLinux(slackbased)
Thanks in advance.

You didn't Google hard enough

The sixth link listed on a Google search for "xerces-c":
http://archive.apache.org/dist/xml/xerces-c/

That's a link to the Apache archive for "old software", but the current mirrors list the same version as the most current.

Oh, sorry about that
Now I have downloaded the file, when I'm about to run the runConfigure script, it says this:
Code:
root@Joreks:# ./runConfigure -plinux -cgcc -xg++ -minmem -nsocket -tnative -rpthread
ERROR : You have not set your XERCESCROOT environment variable
How do I set the enviroment variable?!

Bash lets you create environment variables using this format:
Code:
export Variablename=Value
There is a Readme.html file included in the xerces tarball that has some build instructions for Unix-style systems. It says that the XERCESCROOT environment variable needs to be set to the path to the Xerces-C source code directory. In other words, if you untar'ed the source to /home/Jorek/software/xerces-c, then you need to export XERCESCROOT with this:
Code:
export XERCESCROOT=/home/Jorek/software/xerces-c/xerces-c-src_2_7_0
That last directory is created when you untar the source tarball, and the numbers will depend on which version of the software you downloaded.

To read the Readme.html file that came in the tarball, open a web browser, select File->Open File, and browse to the directory that has it. It has lots of good stuff in it.
