Sub_title: Needed to build GNOME 3
 

Well... I'm working on building GNOME 3, but I'm trying to get libffi to work first... I think I'm missing something, since it's been about 4 years since I last used GCC and built something... I've successfully completed the "configure" part of getting the build done. I've done make ./Makefile and make install ./Makefile and they both complete with no errors, but when I go to make the GTK, it says it's not been done. What am I missing?

Just realized, I have the libffi.so files in /usr/local/lib but it's not reading them in GCC when it goes to do the configure command?

Code:
checking for LIBFFI... no
configure: error: Package requirements (libffi >= 3.0.0) were not met:

No package 'libffi' 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 LIBFFI_CFLAGS
and LIBFFI_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Code:
cat /usr/lib/pkgconfig/libffi.pc

should show something like this :
Code:
prefix=/usr/local
exec_prefix=${prefix}
libdir=${exec_prefix}/lib
includedir=${libdir}/libffi-3.0.9/include

Name: libffi
Description: Library supporting Foreign Function Interfaces
Version: 3.0.9
Libs: -L${libdir} -lffi
Cflags: -I${includedir}
