 I installed gnome-libs-1.4.2nb4 and the error message changed:
 checking for fixesext >= 2.0... Package fixesext was not found in the pkg-config search path. Perhaps you should add the directory containing `fixesext.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable No package 'fixesext' found
 configure: error: Library requirements (fixesext >= 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.
 *** Error code 1
 bmake: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/x11/Xfixes
 The scenario seems,
 1. pkg-config is x11/Xfixes/work/.tools/bin/pkg-config because
    USE_TOOLS+=pkg-config is set in x11/Xfixes/Makefile
 2. It uses /usr/pkg/bin/pkg-config with
 3. But, there is no
    /usr/pkgsrc/x11/Xfixes/work/.buildlink/lib/pkgconfig directory
 4. Consequently, pkg-config fails
 I made a symbolic link,
 # ln -s /usr/pkg/lib/pkgconfig /usr/pkgsrc/x11/Xfixes/work/.buildlink/lib/
 and this error had gone.
 I think buildlink3/ needs change. But I have no idea
 about how it should be.
