Description Jan Schmidt 2006-12-11 01:53:20 UTC
The check for libcaca simply looks for the existence of a /usr/bin/caca-config file, which is not sufficient to test that anything can actually be built. 

dnl *** libcaca ***
translit(dnm, m, l) AM_CONDITIONAL(USE_LIBCACA, true)
GST_CHECK_FEATURE(LIBCACA, [libcaca coloured ASCII art], cacasink, [

The check should use the caca-config stuff to try and build something.

Or just switch over to using the pkg-config file, caca.pc.
Comment 2 Tim-Philipp Müller 2006-12-16 11:43:22 UTC
This should fix it I think:

          Make sure libcaca can actually be used instead of just checking for
          /usr/bin/caca-config, so we don't wrongly try to build cacasink when
          cross-compiling (fixes #384587).
