Error: The following dependencies failed to build: gtk2 lcms libart_lgpl libwmf p5-xml-parser perl5.8

This is the first bug I've filed, I'm new to OS X and Darwinports. Hope that this is all the info that is required. Essentially, when I do "sudo port install gimp2" it seems to go ok up to this point. When I do "port intsalled" pango is there. I've also tried the workaround in bug 2202 to no avail. Thanks, Will

There have already been many reports on the list about gtk2 failing to find pango at configure time, therefore assigning this bug to Jim so he can have a look into the issue.

This is very similar to the error in bug 2909. I think I have traced the problem to the latest version of pkg-config.

In the past, pkg-config's behavior has been to automatically take into account any dependencies when creating a --libs list for you. For instance, since pangoxft declares that it relies on pango, and by extension, glib, gobject, etc., running

pkg-config --libs pangoxft

used to ensure that it would include the -l directives to get the core pango libraries.

This is no longer the case with version 0.17.2. Instead, it will try to determine whether or not your system supports inter-library dependencies -- i.e., whether the linker will take care of tracking down these extra libraries or not. pkg-config must be erroneously assuming that Mac OS X supports this. Because of its two-level namespace in the linker, this is not the case.

So the fix, as far as I can tell, is to uninstall pkgconfig, force it to always list the full dependencies (using the patch I'm about to upload), and then install gtk2 (or gimp2 or whatever).

On a whim I just blew away my existing darwinports infrastructure and ports, and reinstalled everything from scratch. Gimp2 installed fine (and so did several other ports that previously had problems). YMMV...
