I'm trying to install gaim-encryption on knoppix 3.4
and I am unwilling to tamper with my sources.list to
get it.

First I did this:
# tar xzf gaim-encryption-2.27.tar.gz
# cd gaim-encryption-2.27

Then I did this:
./configure

When that didn't work i tried:
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
./configure

That gave me a:
checking for gaim... Package gaim was not found in the
pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gaim.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gaim' found

configure: error: Library requirements (gaim) not met;
consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment
variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix
so pkg-
config can find them.

So then as root I:
find / -name 'gaim.pc'

That returned nothing.

    What version of Gaim are you using? 2.27 only works with 0.79.

    Also- did you install Gaim from source? It looks as though
    the Debian package isn't installing the Gaim headers (and
    .pc file). Until there is a Gaim-devel package, you'll
    probably need to install Gaim from source.
