no, it doesn't work. I have done the export.

When I install dbus1.0.2, it set its path automatically
to /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig, here pkgconfig is a directory, with only
one file dbus-1.pc inside, which of the content:


Name: dbus
Description: Free desktop message bus
Version: 1.0.2
Libs: -L${libdir} -ldbus-1  
Cflags: -I${includedir}/dbus-1.0 -I${libdir}/dbus-1.0/include

when I am going to install dbus-glib-0.73,it automatically check
for /usr/bin/pkg-config, here pkg-config is a binary file, apparent an
old version of dbus. and error occurs:

checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for DBUS... Requested 'dbus-1 >= 0.93' but version of dbus is
configure: error: DBus development libraries not found

I think the problem is I can not find the new pkg-config binary file
generated after I installed dbus-1.02 and make the configure of  dbus-
glib-0.73 point to it.
