gnome-menus - unrecognized options: --enable-inotify


In the BLFS book the configure line for Gnome-menus is:
./configure --prefix=$(pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0) \
--sysconfdir=/etc/gnome/2.28.2 \
--enable-inotify

Configure issues a warning:
configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --enable-inotify

Does this mean that I'll have to use Gamin for file polling rather than the kernel?

I have not done LFS, but inotify is part of the linux-libc-headers package, did you compile that package with inotify built in?

Yes. In LFS they are called the linux-API-headers and the inotify files are as follows:

/linux-API-headers/linux-2.6.32.2/include/linux/inotify.h
/linux-API-headers/linux-2.6.32.2/usr/include/linux/inotify.h
/linux-API-headers/linux-2.6.32.2/Documentation/filesystems/inotify.txt
/linux-API-headers/linux-2.6.32.2/fs/notify/inotify
/linux-API-headers/linux-2.6.32.2/fs/notify/inotify/inotify_user.c
/linux-API-headers/linux-2.6.32.2/fs/notify/inotify/inotify_fsnotify.c
/linux-API-headers/linux-2.6.32.2/fs/notify/inotify/inotify.c
/linux-API-headers/linux-2.6.32.2/fs/notify/inotify/inotify.h

When you run the actual make you will be fine, the warning is a bug with autoconf according to XEmacs (message 1245). Confirming that this can be safely ignored is a thread related to a similar issue with Apache.
