Dear BLFS folks,

Trying to build GTK+ 3.22.26 [1] with the Wayland backend enabled, it 
fails with the error below.

$ /dev/shm/bee-root/gtk+/gtk+-3.22.26-0/source/configure --prefix=/usr 
--bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin --libexecdir=/usr/libexec

--docdir=/usr/share/doc/gtk+ --exec-prefix=/usr --enable-introspection 
--enable-wayland-backend --enable-xinerama --enable-x11-backend
configure: error: Package requirements (pango pangocairo gdk-pixbuf-2.0

1.0 ) were not met:

No package 'wayland-egl' found

Is the dependency on wayland-EGL missing in the book? I couldn’t find it 
either on the Web searching with these keywords.

Kind regards,
