GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 331842
should check for mad and id3tag headers, not libs
Last modified: 2006-02-27 18:38:24 UTC
configure currently checks for pkg-config of mad and id3tag, and if that fails, checks whether their libraries are available. This will pass even if the devel packages for these are not installed. It should check for their headers instead. This may be true about other libraries too.
Is this something that actually bit you in practice, or just something you noticed from inspection?
Either way, this fixes it here:
Make the id3tag and mad checks check for both a header and the
appropriate library if the pkg-config is missing. (Closes #331842)
Split the id3tag and mad checks into 2 pieces. Sometime soon I might
do the same for the plugins themselves.
