!?&*% distribution-dependencies!



Their "./configure" uses "pkg-config" in non-portable, distribution-dependent ways:
it seems to be dependent upon particular RedHat package-names, and does not work witheven slight variations -- in particular, does not work with the GTK package names that Mandriva uses.

The alternatives are supposed to be there according to "./configure --he;lp", but are not documented, and the obvious guesses do not work.



And there uis no feedback nor bug-reporting mechanism on the LXDE web site at all!!
