    Default State of the configure.ac file

    Is anybody familiar with the Linux build system for ClanLib?

    I was trying to get ClanLib 0.9 svn to compile, and there were problems with freetype2, the library path was incorrect.

    I thought that this would be simple to fix, by using the output from “pkg-config --cflags freetype2” for the ClanDisplay compiler flags.

    The current build system seems broken. Or am i misunderstanding it?

    configure.ac contains:
    “clanDisplay_CFLAGS” - Which is not used anywhere
    “extra_CFLAGS_clanDisplay” - Which is used in “pkgconfig/clanDisplay.pc.in”

    Looking at “pkgconfig/clanDisplay.pc.in”
    “Cflags: -I${includedir} @extra_CFLAGS_clanDisplay@” - “Cflags” is not used anywhere.

    I dont know anything about the buildsystem.. none of the core developers use Linux at the moment, so I'm not surprised the state of the buildsystem isn't very good..

    Feel free to rip it apart

    I am having a look at it (For ClanLib 0.9)...

    Looking at “pkgconfig/clanDisplay.pc.in”
    “Cflags: -I${includedir} @extra_CFLAGS_clanDisplay@” - “Cflags” is used by pkg-config - that will teach me for not thinking "why is the directory name called pkgconfig" !!!
