Problem using ./configure while installing kfsmd


I'm trying to use the kfsmd tool <http://www.linux.com/archive/feature/124903> to alert me of folder changes on a RHEL4 installation.

I've d/l'd the source and tried to ./configure it but it fails, needing a current sigc++ library.

So I d/l'd libsigc++-2.2.8 and configured and installed it and I see a
/usr/local/lib/sigc++-2.0 folder now.

So now when I go back and ./configure kfsmd, how do I tell it to look to
/usr/local/lib/sigc++-2.0 for the library it needs?

Why didn't you install libsigc++20 using your package manager?

.. And if you insist in using packages in /usr/local/
( /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/ )

Then :
export PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig/

..
