hello,

just thought i should report a compile error when trying to build v5.7.3 under 32bit suse v10.2

When i ran make i got the following error

gcw.c: In function `proc_str':

gcw.c:1023: `FontLookup' undeclared (first use in this function)

gcw.c:1023: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once

gcw.c:1023: for each function it appears in.)

gcw.c:1023: `N_TrueTypeLookup' undeclared (first use in this function)

gcw.c:1029: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast

gcw.c:1055: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast

make[2]: *** [gcw_la-gcw.lo] Error 1

make[2]: Leaving directory `/tmp/plplot-5.5.3/drivers'

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/plplot-5.5.3'

make: *** [all] Error 2


i had identical problems when i tried compiling v5.6.x and v5.5.x.  i didn't go back any further.  I finally got around the problem by using the disable-gcw option when issuing the configure command.  I found similar problems posted by other people but no clear explanation of the problem, aside from a discussion on this thread

(which has a full listing of the make output, which appears to be almost identical to mine, so i won't post it here)

and which attributed the problem to missing freetype font files.  However, i have the files installed on my system.


Just thought i should mention this..
