I am trying to build Plugins for Geany 1.33 under RHEL 7.3.  Geany was
already successfully built on this machine and is installed at:


>From the directory where the geany plugins files were extracted I ran the
following commands:

setenv PKG_CONFIG_PATH /user/kklein/geany/1.33/lib/pkgconfig

setenv GLIB_CFLAGS -I/usr/include/glib-2.0

./configure --prefix=/user/kklein/geany/1.33


The configure step produces the following header file errors, but nothing
related to glib.h:

conftest.c:11:28: fatal error: ac_nonexistent.h: No such file or directory

conftest.c:26:42: fatal error: CoreFoundation/CFPreferences.h: No such file
or directory

conftest.c:26:37: fatal error: CoreFoundation/CFLocale.h: No such file or

conftest.c:63:18: fatal error: util.h: No such file or directory

conftest.c:64:21: fatal error: libutil.h: No such file or directory

Here is the make output:

make  all-recursive

make[1]: Entering directory `/user/kklein/geany-plugins-1.33'

Making all in po

make[2]: Entering directory `/user/kklein/geany-plugins-1.33/po'

compilation terminated.

I ran the following command:

cpp -v /dev/null -o /dev/null

Which produced the following (truncated) output:



If I run "locate glib.h", I receive the following (truncated) output:


Between that and my setting GLIB_CFLAGS to "-I/usr/include/glib-2.0", I am
not sure why I am receiving this error.  Does anyone have any suggestions?
