Do I need to export that LD_LIBRARY_PATH? Did that, now pango is
inkscape: error while loading shared libraries: inkscape: undefined
So I suppose I'll have to do the same for pango. Or just repave the
whole mess from debian sarge. :)
And I'm not sure pango isn't already in /usr/local/libs... No, thats
clean. This is going to make me have to expand my pathlist in
PKG_CONFIG_PATH too as it put that in /usr/local/libs also. I'd
gotten tired of not finding stuff about 6 months ago and moved all
the contents of all the */lib/pkgconfig dirs to /usr/lib/pkgconfig,
keeping only the newest versions of each .pc file in each case. It
seems every tarball I build puts its pgkconfig stuff in a private
place and I had all kinds of path ordering problems when the
pckconfig PATH had 5 or 6 colon seperated entries. Life is now much
