I'm trying to install fontconfig 2.13.0 and running into the following
error when running configure. Has anyone seen this or would anyone be able
to point me in the right direction? Am I missing a dependency or linux util?

I am roughly following instructions from
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/general/fontconfig.html / our
own notes from installing 2.12.1.

I've already installed freetype 2.9, libxml2 2.9.7.

This is the command I am using.

"./configure --enable-static=yes --enable-libxml2 --sysconfdir=/etc
--localstatedir=/var && make"

This is the error I get.

checking for FT_Get_X11_Font_Format... yes
checking for FT_Done_MM_Var... yes
checking for UUID... no
configure: error: Package requirements (uuid) were not met:

No package 'uuid' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables UUID_CFLAGS
and UUID_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Thanks in advance for any info!

Kind regards,
Simon Lee Shugar
