           Summary: Does not build with dependencies required according to
                    book, but newer version of libgsf does
           Product: Beyond LinuxFromScratch
           Version: a-SVN
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/general/li
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: BOOK
        AssignedTo: blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: Christian.Bendele at gmx.net

My System is LFS-gcc4 from svn built within the last 20 days, always using
newest svn (host system was lfs 5.0). Instead of gcc-4.0.1 gcc-4.0.2 was used.
BLFS was built within the last 10 days always using newest svn. All dependencies
that the book states for libgsf (glib, libxml, xml::parser) built successfully,
as did xfce4, firefox, thunderbird, xchat, cups and ghostscript with all their
required dependencies. Nothing else was installed yet on the clean lfs system. 

Installing libgsf-1.12.3 according to the book I failed at ./configure step.
The last lines of output from "./configure --prefix=/usr" are:

  configure: WARNING: thumbnailer will not be built, unable to find gconftool-2
  configure: error: conditional "GCONF_SCHEMAS_INSTALL" was never defined.
  Usually this means the macro was only invoked conditionally.

The same happend with or without any possible combination of the
"--without-gnome and --disable-schemes-install" flags which I tried.

I then proceeded to install the newest version of libgsf (1.13.2 as of this
writing) instead of the older version contained in the book. The newer version
of libgsf configured and build without any problems and errors in the otherwise
unchanged environment. So maybe the way to go is just update libgsf in the book
to the newest version.
