Re: Gnome won't compile: cannot find -lpcre

You were right, pcre was not a dependency, so it wasn't added in the
buildlink process. pcre was included in the gtk2 link with a "-lpcre"
statement, for a reason I still don't understand. I could'nt find why
that flag is added, since nothing in gtk2 requires it, not even in the
gtk2 pkgsrc build files.

Anyway, I solved the problem by adding pcre as a dependency in gtk2, and
everything is fine since. If somebody ever finds why this flag was
added, please advise me.

Thanks for the help.
