Errors whilst compiling MATE on 14.1


Hi,

I use Slackware 14.1 (not current). During the install of MATE desktop using the MATE slackbuild project, errors such as the following occurred:

For mate-base:

Code:
warning: '/usr/lib64/libffi.la' seems to be moved
This line appeared frequently. And at the end:

Code:
4) supports shared libraries... yes
checking dynamic linker characteristics... (cached) GNU/Linux ld.so
checking how to hardcode library paths into programs... immediate
checking which gtk+ version to compile against... 2.0
checking for GMODULE... yes
checking for PROCMAN... no
configure: error: Package requirements (gmodule-2.0 glib-2.0 >= 2.36.0 libgtop-2.0 >= 2.23.1 libwnck-1.0 >= 2.5.0 gtk+-2.0 >= 2.20.0 mate-icon-theme >= 1.1.0 gtkmm-2.4 >= 2.22 libxml-2.0 >= 2.0 librsvg-2.0 >= 2.35 glibmm-2.4 >= 2.22 giomm-2.4 >= 2.26.0) were not met:

No package 'gtkmm-2.4' found
No package 'glibmm-2.4' found
No package 'giomm-2.4' 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 PROCMAN_CFLAGS
and PROCMAN_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
For mate-extra, at the end:

Code:
checking for python... /usr/bin/python
checking for rst2man... python rst2man.py
checking for pygtk... No protocol specified
/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py:57: GtkWarning: could not open display
  warnings.warn(str(e), _gtk.Warning)
yes
checking for gobject... yes
checking for docutils... no
configure: error: couldn't find docutils
Indeed, those were packages which were not installed before MATE, since they were Slackbuilds, not Slackware core packages. However, after I logged out from my KDE session, I entered my MATE session without any visible issues. Still, should I install the missing slackbuild dependencies, and bother about the libffi.la issue?

First, make sure you checkout 14.1-mate-1.10 branch, not master if you are building from 14.1 (stable)
secondly, please run mate-build-deps.sh to build all the deps before running mate-build-base.sh and mate-build-extra.sh

Oh no, it seems that I've mistakenly used the master development MATE version 1.10.1... But I want to change it to the stable 1.10 version. What should I do?

for now, master and 14.1-mate-1.10 doesn't differentiate much, only one package is not compiling in 14.1, but to make sure, change to 14.1-mate-1.10 branch by running
Code:
git checkout 14.1-mate-1.10

I'm not sure how to clone the directory... Anyway this is what I did:

I went to the mate slackbuild git site here exactly: https://github.com/mateslackbuilds/m...14.1-mate-1.10 then I downloaded a zip file before unpacking it. And within this directory I ran the command but the error was the same

git clone https://github.com/mateslackbuilds/msb.git
cd msb
git checkout 14.1-mate-1.10
./mate-build-deps.sh
./mate-build-base.sh
./mate-build-extra.sh
