I'm trying to install Xournal on a Mac w/ OS 10.4.8. Running ./autogen.sh produces some output, including the last two lines

./configure: line 4199: syntax error near unexpected token `PACKAGE,'
./configure: line 4199: `PKG_CHECK_MODULES(PACKAGE, $pkg_modules)'

Next I type "make" and get

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

Any suggestions?

    Is pkg-config installed on your system? (in particular you should have somewhere a file called pkg.m4 in a directory containing scripts for aclocal). I think your error is caused by aclocal failing to process the PKG_CHECK_MODULES directive in configure.in (normally configure should not contain this line - aclocal should have taken care of replacing it by a sequence of commands to run).

    In general, you'll need GTK+-2 and libgnomecanvas, and various other libraries, in order to be able to build xournal. I'm not sure about the status of all these libraries (I'm not familiar with MacOS) - but I guess it would be good to figure out how to build Xournal on MacOS, since I've heard that a Mac tablet is going to appear soon.
