Question where is fontconfig.pc ?


Hi,

I am trying to install pango which requires fontconfig.pc

I tried to locate fontconfig.pc and got nothing. I have RH9.0 and have installed all the X11 components.
Any ways I installed fontconfig-devel-2.1-9 but still cant find any fontconfig.pc files

Please help. Thank you.

That does help. I then did an updatedb and locate, it showed up at the same place as you said.

BTW would you know how to add this to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable. While configuring pango I get the following error.

----------
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `fontconfig.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'fontconfig' found
configure: WARNING: No fontconfig found, skipping tests for FreeType and Xft
configure: error: *** Didn't find any of FreeType, X11, or Win32.
*** Must have at least one backend to build Pango.
------------
