Install MPD on a (B)LFS system: GLib problem


When trying to configure the git version of MPD, I get:

checking for GLIB... no
configure: error: GLib 2.12 is required
I have installed GLib-1.2.10 and GLib-2.24.2 from BLFS (svn).
Pkg-config-0.25 was already installed in LFS (v 6.8).

Googling reveals this problem can often be solved by installing the (debian) package libglib2.0-dev. But this should be included in the above glib packages?

What should I try?

grep -in "checking for GLIB" mpd/*

Example :
mpd/config.log:688:configure:6615: checking for GLIB
mpd/configure:6615:{ $as_echo "$as_me:${as_lineno-$LINENO}: checking for GLIB" >&5
mpd/configure:6616:$as_echo_n "checking for GLIB... " >&6; }
.. Meaning that you can look into the 'configure' script about line 6615 and read
that mpd uses PKG_CONFIG. Checks for for : /usr/lib/pkgconfig/glib-2.0.pc

Also says: "pkg_cv_GLIB_CFLAGS=`$PKG_CONFIG --cflags "glib-2.0 >= 2.12"
I.e. : glib 2.12 or later : GLIB 2.24 is OK.

Well, I reinstalled GLib 2.24. That solved it. I don't understand what went wrong, but MPD is running now.

Thank you very much for your help.
