Compiling emacs-19.34 and xcd won't see X

Post by Ernest Hyme » Sun, 10 Nov 1996 04:00:00



Hello all,

I'm running FreeBSD 2.1.5-STABLE and XFree86 3.2, trying to compile both
xcd and emacs-19.34. Both of these report no X, so xcd won't compile at all
(even if I compile while running X!) and emacs-19.34 won't run under X
after it compiles. I have X located in /usr/local/X11R6, and a soft link
pointing to that directory at /usr/X11R6. The Makefile for emacs is the
default, which says to compile with X support.

Why oh why can't the compilation recognize that I *do* have X??

Thanks in advance; as always, an email cc is appreciated.

This is weird. GNU configure always finds my X11R6 in /usr/X11R6. If it
doesn't on your system, you can force with

configure --x-libraries=/usr/X11R6/lib --x-includes=/usr/X11R6/include
