Re: [libvirt] gem install ruby-libvirt fails on FreeBSD 10.2

Turns out it works fine out of the box if you have pkgconf installed.

Hi Rickard,

I tried it on my system and it seems to work fine without manually
providing include and lib paths.

>From what I can see, it uses pkg-config to detect CFLAGS and LDFLAGS (I
could be wrong here though because I'm not familiar with Ruby).

Could you please check if you have this working:

$ pkg-config --libs --cflags libvirt
-I/usr/local/include -L/usr/local/lib -lvirt

If that does not work, could you please describe how did you do the
libvirt installation on your system?
