Unhappy /usr/lib/libfontconfig.so: could not read symbols: File in wrong format


Hello,

Below is part of the output of the make command when trying to compile libgtkhtml-2.6.3. I cannot find any information as to why this keeps happening other than I am running Suse 10.1 64 bit and it is accessing a 32 bit library and file. I don't know how to tell make to look in the /usr/lib64/ directory for libfontconfig.so. Somebody please help. Thanks.

P.S. Please assume i don't know the syntax of any command, so if you offer a command, please include the syntax. Thanks!!!

you could try running ./configure --help, that usually shows you a list of available commands. chech and see if you can find anything referring to the libfontconfig. there might be an option allowing you to specify the path of that lib.

Unhappy Tried ./configure --help and got lots of options

There are many options but none mention libfontconfig. I tried ./configure --with-PACKAGE=/usr/lib64 then make, but it didn't work. I tried ./configure --includedir=/usr/lib64 then make, but that didn't work either. Does anyone have any more ideas? I would greatly appreciate it!!!!! Thanks in advance!!!!
