Hello, I have been following this thread a little, and corresponding with
Richard on related matters.  Good citizen that Richard is, he has encouraged
me to stick my oar in!  Thanks to Richard for his help.

To cut to the chase, if you want to set an environment variable, you use the
following commands:


or more generically

export MY_PATH

That should do the trick.

On my system (RH9) it is part of:

Anyway I've noticed that xft.pc can be placed in an alternative location

If that is the case, please add that path to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH

In any case, I found out that xft.pc is included in XFree86-devel on
SuSE 8.2 (look at the bottom of the file list):

And in that case is placed under /usr/lib/pkgconfig.

Hope this helped somewhat.
