XMMS AAC plugin - can't compile MPEG4IP, missing lid3tag

Hi all.
I'm trying to install an AAC plugin for XMMS. This thing has a ton of dependencies. Right now I'm working on installing MPEG4IP, but it's not working out so well.

Anyway, I go into the MPEG4IP directory and do ./bootstrap --disable-server && make - it goes through configuration apparently without issue and make gets fairly far in, but it stops at:

/bin/sh ../../../../libtool --mode=link g++ -D_REENTRANT -DNOCONTROLS -fexceptions -Wall -Werror -Wmissing-prototypes -Wno-char-subscripts -Woverloaded-virtual -Wno-unknown-pragmas -Wno-deprecated -Wformat=2 -g -O2 -DMPEG4IP   -o -rpath /usr/local/lib/mp4player_plugin -module mp3if.lo mp3_file.lo -lm -lid3 -lid3tag ../../../../player/lib/audio/mp3/ ../../../../player/lib/audio/mp3util/ ../../../../lib/fposrec/ -ldl
g++ -shared -nostdlib /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.3.3/../../../crti.o /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.3.3/crtbeginS.o  .libs/mp3if.o .libs/mp3_file.o -Wl,--whole-archive ../../../../player/lib/audio/mp3/.libs/libourmp3.a ../../../../player/lib/audio/mp3util/.libs/libmp3utils.a ../../../../lib/fposrec/.libs/libfposrec.a -Wl,--no-whole-archive  -lid3 -lid3tag -ldl -L/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.3.3 -L/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.3.3/../../.. -lstdc++ -lm -lc -lgcc_s /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.3.3/crtendS.o /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.3.3/../../../crtn.o  -Wl,-soname -Wl, -o .libs/
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lid3tag
I'm assuming lid3tag is basically the same as libid3, which I do have installed. I can't find anything relevant about lid3tag, anyway.

I am having the same problem trying to compile gtkpod! Did you find it? My error message is:

checking for msgfmt... no
checking for getopt_long_only... yes
checking for getopt_long_only... (cached) yes
checking for flock... yes
checking for id3_frame_field in -lid3tag... no
configure: error: *** id3tag >= 0.15 lib not found (0.14 will not work!)

And configure stops. Any suggestions?

Just got it to work. It is just a matter of finding the source code for the library (that is pointed by gtkpod's website) and compile it. Many other libraries may be needed but it is just a matter of checking the error messages and install one by one.

gtkpod libid3tag installed but not found

i have libid3tag installed -

$> ls -l /usr/lib/libid3*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Oct 2 01:18 /usr/lib/ ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 80276 Apr 10 2006 /usr/lib/

i also tried to install it via rpm (can't find source? to recompile etc). here's what happened with rpm attempt:

$> rpm -Uvh libid3tag-0.15.1b-2.fc5.i386.rpm
Preparing... ################################ [100%]
package libid3tag-0.15.1b-3.fc5.rf (which is newer than libid3tag-0.15.1b-2.fc5) is already installed

here is the error message in gtkpod config.log:

configure:8081: checking for id3_frame_field in -lid3tag
configure:8116: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 -Wall -Wno-pointer-sign conftest.c -lid3tag >&5
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lid3tag

any assistance would be tremendously appreciated...
