Trying to install this version based on recently installed glib 2.22.3, FC9 distro. "configure" seems to ignore "pkg-config" which specifies use of glib 2.22.3. Instead, it keeps coming up with a previous rev, 2.16.6, which is too old. I have attempted to "block" all access to this older rev, even "renaming" these files as ".old", but the system persists on finding the older rev. "configure" appears to be using "base_dependencies" instead of "pkg-config", but I'm not certain of this.
Any suggestions appreciated.
Solution: Had to use the "export" command in lieu of "env" to indicate the correct pkgconfig file location and the "LD_LIBRARY_PATH" location. Then had to go to the library and modify the symbolic links to point to the correct version of the lib files as well. Not a "software" type"; very difficult/confusing!
