Proper syntax for ACLOCAL_FLAGS variable
 
I am trying to build Cluttersmith from source and it's looking for gobject-introspection >= 1.0 for dependencies. No problem; just pull gobject-introspection off of GNOME's git repository. So now I have to build that from source. Just one problem: It depends on gtk-doc! No worries; build that from source. Obviously, gtk-doc built correctly.

Just one problem: When I try to ./configure gobject-introspection, I get an error (see this screenshot of my Ubuntu terminal for details). And when I try to run echo $ACLOCAL_FLAGS I get nothing.

What I need to know is: What is a valid value for the ACLOCAL_FLAGS variable? And do I need to edit my ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile (or their equivalents in /etc) to use it full force? Please help me.

Not sure if this helps kenny, but there does seem to be a repository for this:

Here's an example:
ACLOCAL_FLAGS "-I /usr/local/share/aclocal/"
While possible to put that in .bashrc or siilar file, it would then always be in effect. I'd just exposrt that before running configuration: export ACLOCAL_FLAGS "-I /usr/local/share/aclocal/"
./configure .....

Thank you. I was able to do it using something similar to that:

Code:

export ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I /usr/local/share/aclocal"
I used '=' instead of a space.

Just one more problem: Now it's looking for a package called 'FFI' and apparently there's no package in the Ubuntu repository by that regex.

Do you mean libFFI (foreign function interface)?
