#1295 closed defect (fixed)

missing dependency

Reported by: garry@… Owned by: mij@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc:


tried to install gtk-gnutella, it got so far then said (and i quote):

checking for GTK - version >= 1.2.0... no * The gtk-config script installed by GTK could not be found * If GTK was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in * your path, or set the GTK_CONFIG environment variable to the * full path to gtk-config. configure: error: Cannot find GTK: Is gtk-config in path?

surely the gtk install should be handled by a dependency?

do you have ${prefix} in your path? (${prefix} is '/opt/local' by default)

(btw reassigning this bug to maintainer)

i've got /opt/local/bin in my path. i didn't realise that i needed /opt/local as well.

it's not mentioned in the docs.

hups, sorry but bugzilla fouled me and didn't write me a mail about your post:

you - of course - need ${prefix}/bin and probably ${prefix}/sbin in your PATH environment; (I suppose gtk-config is in ${prefix}/sbin so it isn't found by configure)
