Re: [libvirt] compiling one driver



Ok, I created a .pc file with the output of xmlrpc-c-config (now pkg-config xmlrpc_client --libs --cflags is OK). The error occurs not in configure execution, but in make execution as a linking error like that:

 undefined reference to `xmlrpc_client_call

and several others similar (as I said in the first message)
I have installed the latest version of xmlrpc compiled from source.

Any idea?

 Okay

 Hum, yes if the .pc is not upstream, that's logical, though IMHO
it's probably time better spent to try to get a .pc in xmlrpc-c
upstream.

 And then add a xmlrpc-c-config based check in configure.in if
PKG_CHECK_MODULES fails.
