Right, that's a different error. I think. What does your config.log say?
When I trumbled through the dependencies (by the way, what's the verb for
'compiled using pkgsrc'?) for gqview-devel, there were a number of small
tweaks I had to perform on packages that were failing. An errant -lcompat
here, a missing -lstdc++ there... You'll have to tweak the occasional
error, always looking at the config.log for the reason.
I'd be glad to help, as gqview-devel, gtk+-2.2.4, and the Panther gtk2 theme
-- sweet...) all work fine here.
