10.3: Install the GNU Midnight Commander from source
Authored by: AIVAS on Jan 23, '04 01:36:56PM
Works well with one minor hitch. After installing pkg-config, you may have to edit the shell path to include
/usr/local/bin
This is where pkg-config is installed. You can edit the shell path in the profile
/etc/profile
Use
sudo pico /etc/profile
I use pico, you can use whatever editor you chose
. Add the line:
PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/bin"
Open a new shell (CMD-N) and type
% set
Scroll the window until you see the variable PATH and look at it's value. It should have
/usr/local/bin
at the end.

Do the rest of the steps from this window (you can close the first if you feel like it). That way the next packages will pick up pkg-config.

This, at least, is what I found on my stock G5 1.8DP w/ 10.3.2.

Cheers.
