configure: error: glib-compile-schemas not found.


Title says it all, i'm getting errors during configure due to missing schemas.

Apparently running
Code:
/usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas
Should populate the folder. However that folder didn't exist so i created it, and the command doesn't exist on my machine. Is this a standard file on slackware, if not where can i find it?

note i have a slackware64-13.1 full install with gsb 2.30

I have it at /usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas.
greps says at that it cames from glib2 package.
Now usually this command run at time of doinst.sh I think you have a broken install of glib2. try to reinstall it.

weird i was going to reinstall glib2 but thought i'd check it was there, I have glib2-2.24 installed which doesn't have glib-compile-schemas in and according to slackpkg neither do any other slackware packages?
Code:
root@slackbox:/tmp# ls /var/log/packages/ | grep glib2  
glib2-2.24.1-x86_64-1gsb
root@slackbox:/tmp# slackpkg file-search glib-compile-schemas

Looking for glib-compile-schemas in package list. Please wait... DONE

No packages contains "glib-compile-schemas" file.

root@slackbox:/tmp#
Which seemed strange if your package does contain it. So i downloaded glib2-2.22.5 to confirm it wasn't there
Code:
root@slackbox:/tmp# ls -l
total 1972
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2018660 2011-02-03 20:23 glib2-2.22.5-x86_64-1.txz
root@slackbox:/tmp# explodepkg glib2-2.22.5-x86_64-1.txz | grep glib-compile-schemas
root@slackbox:/tmp# ls -l usr/bin/
total 96
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 25088 2010-04-30 01:14 glib-genmarshal*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  5448 2010-04-30 01:14 glib-gettextize*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 15725 2010-04-30 01:14 glib-mkenums*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  7808 2010-04-30 01:14 gobject-query*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 20112 2010-04-30 01:14 gtester*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 13545 2010-04-30 01:14 gtester-report
root@slackbox:/tmp#
so slackpkg infers its not/no longer part of the stock install, nor does it seem part of the gsb 2.30 install???

I'm sure i've seen threads about xfce using it???
Is there some difference between x86_64 and i486 packages?

Sorry, I checked original package from a mirror and It did not have it. I can't find much info on it but I'm guessing it's new command will be part of Stock Slackware soon.

Sorry for confusing you.
