Re: [Mingw-cross-env-list] PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG(0.16) syntax error

Whoops, looks like installing pkgconf on your system solved it. Was it not listed as one of the requirements? Is it an arch linux thing, where it doesn't install pkgconf when other distros do?

On my freshly updated arch linux box, I encountered the following error:

./configure: line 1783: syntax error near unexpected token `0.16'
./configure: line 1783: `PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG(0.16)'

Now, I saw another thread on this mailing list saying that this was moved out of the gcc check and into autotools, but unfortunately I the packages I'm trying to install seem to require autotools (openal, curl).

What can be done to go around this problem? I'm not 100% sure what the other thread meant when it said the following:

 "Just to report: I've checked and removing those auto{conf,make} from my PATH does allow 'make autotools' to succeed (even though it's now picking up system versions that are too old according to http://mxe.cc/#requirements (on a CentOS 6.6 box))."?

I tried manually renaming autoconf/make from /usr/bin into something else to test it, and it got me another error.

Not sure where to go from here, anyone got any idea?
