Description Michael Lee Yohe 2003-09-12 14:46:33 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030722

Description of problem:
During the configure process for floppy-0.12, there is an error reported due to
a highly bogus path.

checking for gtk-config... /asfd/jkl/bin/gtk-config
checking for GTK - version >= 1.2.0... ./configure: line 1:
/asfd/jkl/bin/gtk-config: No such file or directory
./configure: line 1: /asfd/jkl/bin/gtk-config: No such file or directory
./configure: line 1: /asfd/jkl/bin/gtk-config: No such file or directory
./configure: line 1: /asfd/jkl/bin/gtk-config: No such file or directory
./configure: line 1: /asfd/jkl/bin/gtk-config: No such file or directory
*** Could not run GTK test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GTK was incorrectly installed
*** or that you have moved GTK since it was installed. In the latter case, you
*** may want to edit the gtk-config script: /asfd/jkl/bin/gtk-config

No modifications have been made, and I obviously don't have a BS path like
/asdf/jkl.  Was this done on purpose?  If so, could this be patched out?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see description

Actual Results:  You see the error in the configure process above.

Expected Results:  Should be corrected so that GTK support will be built *or*
that part of the configure process should be patched out so that something that
unclean would never appear.

Comment 1 Elliot Lee 2003-09-15 11:28:14 UTC
This intentional behaviour is the way I have chosen to disable GTK support. There's no 
apparent benefit to stripping GTK detection from configure altogether, and doing so would 
be a lot more complicated and harder to maintain, so I see no reason to change.
