Hello development type people,
This was originally posted on the XaraLX forum, and I was told this was
a more appropriate place.
--- First Post ---
Congrats on getting Xara Xtreme LX ready and released as an open source
project! Some time ago I expressed interest in helping with development,
so as soon as I saw the source was available (couple of days ago) I got
it and started compiling. I'm running Slackware Linux 10.2 and I've run
into a couple of things.
I have written several wxWidgets programs, so I keep several static
versions of the library around. wxWidgets-2.6.3-rc2 compiled no problem
for me. I made a build_static_unicode directory in the base source
directory and configured it with:
../configure --disable-shared --enable-unicode
then did make.
Then I uncompressed Xara, made a build directory in the base source
directory and configured with:
I didn't expect to have to specify --enable-static-exec, but that made
compilation happy. On to linking!
This is where I'm stuck. It appears that the XaraLX_LDFLAGS in the
Makefile are generated incorrectly. It was looking for them in
/usr/local/lib instead of using `wx-config --libs` to point to the ones
in my non-installed static build. I edited the Makefile and the build
got a little further. Now I am getting that the compiler is unable to
find -lCDraw and -lfontconfig, which weren't checked for by configure.
Fontconfig I am vaguely familiar with, and I think I can get it
installed, but it should still be checked for. I searched high and low
for what -lCDraw is, but didn't have any luck.
Am I missing something pretty basic from my Linux installation?
Any help would be appreciated!

Okay, I poked around some more and see that CDraw is in:
and also that I have fontconfig (comes with X11R6) in:
so I hacked on the Makefile some more.
I removed -lCDraw and -lfontconfig, and added the full path to both of
those libraries to the XaraLX_LDFLAGS. I now have a compiled and working

Are these issues problems with the configure system or am I just
building Xara in a weird way?
