compilation error webkitgtk
Version:Slackware 13.37/stable/x86_64 (Multilib)

I am currently attempting to update webkitgtk-1.3.4-x86_64-1_SBo with the current stable webkitgtk-1.6.3.
I have adjusted the slackbuild to notice the updated package. The compilation stops with the following error.


checking for GAIL... no
configure: error: Package requirements (gail-3.0 >= 3.0) were not met:

No package 'gail-3.0' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GAIL_CFLAGS
and GAIL_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.

Checking for gail shows me the version of gail installed in my system.


ldconfig -v | grep gail* ->

I have looked and can't find gail-3.0. has the following...

I added

to the Slackbuild, but it didn't help.

I'm a bit puzzled and hopefully someone can guide me through this.

Best regards
