Re: pkg/39877: X11 packages not working on IRIX

You're right - IRIX provides no pkg-config files for anything.

Does this mean that I have no option but to abandon my native X
installation if I wish to install packages, such as pidgin, which do
have a reliance on X components (even if the OS does supply them in
some shape or form)?  Or is there some other way to generate or remove
the need for pkg-config files for native components?
