Hey, I should probably explain what i was trying.
My goal is to compile pdf2swf under an application named crossbridge.
So for that we had written an additional bunch of code and wanted to make sure that we have all the necessary files from the actual source in order to successfully compile the code.

Im trying to create a standalone version of pdf2swf and was coming up with errors when I attempt to compile the code without making any changes to it.

Compiling was done by: gcc pdf2swf.c pdf2pdf.c and also by compiling each of them individually
The error is attached with the mail

Did you run the 'configure' script first?
I would be surprised if you did...

Also, pdf2swf and pdf2pdf are two distinct programs that cannot be compiled into the same executable,
because both define 'main', a program entry point.

The canonical way to make programs from source packages on linux is:

$ tar -C /path/to/output/directory -xzf somepackage.tar.gz
$ cd /path/to/output/directory/somepackage
$ ./configure
$ make

Run './configure --help' for a summary of options.

Additionally and optionally, you can become root using 'su', and then run 'make install'.

Hope this helps,
