I salute you,
the newbie checked out xine-lib from mercurial (version 1.1.17). Now he wants to build the project. autogen.sh runs and stops in configure and gives "iconv library not found". It is not abailable in Fedora distribution, so he installed it and now the libiconv.so is located in /usr/lib64. Why does the autogen.sh script not find it?
What the hack am I missing?

(ps: I have build xine-lib from the distribution package xine-lib- without problems)
I have a java background, but actually I'm not an experienced C developer on linux - not yet. Any hints are most welcome.
