- Subject: glib doesn't build from source
I tried to build glib using glib2.0-2.32.2-1.cygport from the source for
Cygwin's libglib2.0_0-2.32.2-1 package, and the build failed as follows:
checking for LIBFFI... configure: error: Package requirements (libffi >=
3.0.0) were not met:
No package 'libffi' found
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBFFI_CFLAGS
and LIBFFI_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
So I added the lines
to the .cygport file, and the build then succeeded.
Yaakov, why did the build work for you with the existing .cygport?
