pkg-config - how do I make a .pc file?


I'm trying to compile a cvs version of libofx. It's configure warns of not being able to find a particular "libxml++-1.0" (libxml). Then make fails due to the libxml not being found.

I have libxml++-1.0 soft linked to libxml++-1.0.5 in my pkgconfig dir. If I can figure out how to make it into libxml++-1.0.5.pc, that should resolve the problem (I hope).

Please tell me how to make a .pc file.

Thank you,
Bill

if you want to fudge one yourself just look at other ones already on your system and modify to suit your needs

Thanks for the quick reply, Chris. I took a look at fudging it, but it did not look like something that I could figure out how to do (without copying some libraries to different places than normal).

Did some more reading and found that a .pc file comes with a package, if it is to exist at all. So, for the hell of it, I re-compiled the program and there was the .pc file!

I guess I forgot that simple troubleshooting technique about 3 days ago when it first stumped me.

Thanks again,
Bill
