Unhappy xine-ui can't find xine-config on suse 9.2


hi, folks
I'm trying to install Xine from source since all the suse rpms i can find are semi-disfunctional. i've installed lib-xine without a problem but when i try to ./configure xine-ui, i get an error saying "can't find xine-config". the instructions on xinehq.de say to open bash and type in:
export PATH="$prefix/bin:$PATH"
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$prefix/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"
i've tried this using /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/lib where lib-xine is installed and got the same result. other pages i have seen say to add these lines to .bashrc and that didn't work either. i've been searching forums for two days and can't find the problem. what am i missing?

Try running 'ldconfig' after you ran 'make install' for 'xine-lib'.

well, i found a solution at least for xine. open bash and run 'rpmbuild -ta xxxxxxx.tar.gz' for both tarballs and you create rpms built for YOUR system. i now have the latest version of xine and everything works. now on to creating my own '.bashrc' to deal with this PATH thing...
