I'm trying to install a program that requires the guile-devel package. I've managed to install it before, however, I'm unable to do so now while I saved and re-used the syntax I used previously.
During the configure stage I get these messages:
checking for guile-config... unknown
checking for readline in -lreadline... no
checking for dlopen in -ldl... yes
checking for scm_lt_dlinit in -lguile-ltdl... no
checking for dlopen in -lltdl... yes
checking for gh_eval_str in -lguile... no
configure: error: linking to guile failed
From this I thought that I'm either not linking correctly to the guile library or headers. I have however put the guile library directory in the LDFLAGS. Which suggests I'm not linking to the guile-devel headers. I think guile-devel is installed (considering I managed to install the program before) but I'm not sure:
yum list | grep guile
guile.x86_64 5:1.6.4-14 installed
guile.i386 5:1.6.4-14 sl-base
guile-devel.x86_64 5:1.6.4-14 sl-base
Naturally I do not have admin rights to perform a yum install or yum update.
I've tried finding the guile / guile-devel headers but without any succes.
I've also tried to find any .pc file that is related to guile so that I might be able to fool the configure script into using pkg-config instead of guile-config however I found none.
Scientific Linux SL release 4.3 (Beryllium)
Any ideas how I can find the guile / guile-devel headers?
I've managed to get it installed. Still don't know what the issue was though.
