please help me compiling and installing Cairo on a Linux machine. When I
do a do ./configure --prefix=/home/myhome ...it exits with the folling
configure: WARNING: Could not find libpng in the pkg-config search path
checking whether cairo's PNG backend could be enabled... no
configure: error: requested PNG backend could not be enabled
I also tried with
./configure --prefix=/home/myhome --disable-png
but it still complains
configure: error: Cairo requires at least one font backend.
Please install freetype and fontconfig, then try again:
I don't have admin / install privileges and thus I am trying to install it
in my home folder with the --prefix command line argument to configure. I
also compiled and installed both libpng and freetype and fontconfig in my
home directory and did set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /home/myhome/lib and
to /home/myhome/lib/pkgconfig but it's of no use.
Please help me with compilation of Cairo.
Thanks a ton,
