Been fighting gtk,glib,atk,pango for days.

this has been a war, but i just got it. glib wouldn't compile in /usr/lib for me. atk did ok. pango never could find Xft, until i made that PKG_CONFIG_PATH or whatever it was. that took me 2 days 2 figure that out. now gtk was getting parse errors. i've tried with many versions. then i found this googling

I _knew_ I was asking for a smack in the chops with the bleeding
obvious. Thanks for wielding the cluebat

The final solution was to copy the whole of freetype2's include/freetype
into X11R6's include directory. Apparently linking it into
/usr/local/include just isn't good enough.

It's now complaining about conflicts between 2 versions of libexpat (it
wants, while Xft used .so.1), but I should have that fixed
with a little time and some judicious recompiling...


i copied all my /usr/local/include/freetype2/ to /usr/X11R6/include, and then gtk compiled. man it was tough.
