Hello, Everyone :)
While attempting to compile Gimp 1.3.21, I got the following error:
configure: error: Library requirements (fontconfig >= 2.2.0) not met;
consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your
libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
So I proceeded to run "rpm -qa fontconfig" - the result was fontconfig
So I then proceeded to download a tarball of fontconfig-2.2.0 When I
ran configure on it, it seemed to finish fine, except it said that
automake 1.4 and aclocal 1.4 were missing. So I downloaded an RPM of
automake 1.4 that was originally make for Red Hat 6.2, and I installed
it. Still, no automake 1.4 or aclocal 1.4. But I don't know if that
has anything to do with the results of the "make" command.
This is the tail end of the unsuccessful attempt I made at running

jade:/home/steve/fontconfig-2.2.0/doc/fccharset.sgml:763:14:E: end tag for "REFENTRY" which is not finished

I uploaded a tarball of the entire output of "./configure --prefix=/usr"
and "make" to the following location:
I am running Red Hat 9, full installation (well, except for foreign
language related stuff, as I know only one language, and I sometimes
have issues with that one :)) The only major changes I've made to the
default configuration are all of the official Red Hat updates. To
attempt to run down a bug on Bibletime for KDE, I installed current
source-code vesions of the auto-conf tools, but I wouldn't think that
would be an issue, as I installed automake 1.4 before giving up and
writing this message.
Any help you can give me in compiling fontconfig 2.2.0 will be greatly
Have a Great Day :)
