    PKG_CONFIG_PATH not working


    I am trying to install LIBSRVG-2.50 however when i run ./configure the shell complains about the PKG_CONFIG_PATH. The Konsole shell says

    "
    Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgsf-1.pc'
    to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
    No package 'libgsf-1' found
    configure: WARNING: SVGZ support disabled, as requested (Use --with-svgz to enab
    le)
    checking for libcroco >= 0.1.0... Package libcroco was not found in the pkg-conf
    ig search path.
    Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libcroco.pc'
    to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
    No package 'libcroco' found "

    now when i saw this i typed in echo $PKG_CONFIG_PATH and now the shell says
    /opt/gnome/lib/pkgconfig


    however a thorough search has shown that libcroco.pc exist in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig


    so I now set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable by typing

    export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH
    and run echo $PKG_CONFIG_PATH
    /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/opt/gnome/lib/pkgconfig

    Assuming this is right I then run
    make clean.
    /configure

    again and i still recieve the same errors

    Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libcroco.pc'
    to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
    No package 'libcroco' found "

    why is this happening when i set the environment to path of the file that is needed.???? what am i doing wrong??? Im running Suse 9.0

    quote:Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libcroco.pc'
    to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
    No package 'libcroco' found "

    try running ldconfig after changing that and it will add the directories to the search path.
