Error compiling compiz plugins with Alien Bob's multilib packages installed


I maintain the compiz packages over at SBo and I recently submitted packages for 13.37. I tested the packages before I submitted them and they compiled fine. I was contacted by the devs a few days ago about the plugins-main,plugins-extra, and emerald packages failing to compile. I immediately tested this and confirmed that it does indeed fail but only if multilib is installed. I figured out it is the glib2-compat32 package that is causing the problem. For some reason the build keeps picking up the libraries in /usr/lib instead of /usr/lib64 even with the LDFLAGS="-L/usr/lib64" set in the build. If I remove the glib2-compat32 package it will build fine, and oddly enough if I compile without the --prefix=/usr flag set it will finish successfully. I decided to test this on 13.1 and had no problems, this leads me to believe that it could possibly be the glib2-compat32 and not compiz, but I doubt it since Alien Bob's stuff is usually bullet proof.

BTW, here is the output wrong about that.

Should be able to pass /usr/lib$LIBSUFFIXDIR/glib-2.0/include either in configure or as linker flags.

Looks like the problem is with configure. It's hard coded to search /usr/lib/pkgconfig before any other directory. This causes pango and cairo to look in the wrong directories. Every where else, it honors $LIBDIR, but not here.

On or around line 12991.
Even if you pass or export PKG_CONFIG_PATH, this is used as the last search path. Slackware does have the correct search paths set by default (/usr/local/lib64/pkgconfig:/usr/lib64/pkgconfig).

I'd file an upstream bug report with compiz.

I did a dirty sed hack on configure which allowed plugins-main to finish compiling.

Cool man, Just out of curiosity could you post the sed hack you did? I tried it myself but I am screwing it up somehow. Your fix did work cause I made a quick patch, but I not too familiar with sed and I am messing it up somehow?

Thanks


P.S. Nevermind I got it, sed hack is working now. Big thanks again man.

Can somebody explain that sed thing, please? I get this very often:
/usr/include/glib-2.0/glib/gthread.h: In function ‘g_once_init_enter’:
/usr/include/glib-2.0/glib/gthread.h:347:3: error: size of unnamed array is negative

Removing the glib2-compat32 helps, but I'm annoyed to do that every time.
Thanks.

Daedra already submitted this to slackbuilds.org, latest script should work fine.
