configure: error: The pkg-config script could not be found or is too old
Today while trying to install …Do not remember what software… in a new computer with Arch Linux on it, and after installed
pkgtools I’ve found this error:
checking for pkg-config... no checking for IFT... configure: error: The pkg-config script could not be found or is too old. Make sure it is in your PATH or set the PKG_CONFIG environment variable to the full path to pkg-config.
So, the obvious solution is to install
pkg-config, but that lead me to some minutes lost until I realized that was the problem.
Then, here it is, it may be useful for someone in the future.
pacman -Sy pkg-config
After that you should not have the problem again.
Sometimes the solution is just in front of your nose, but you just can’t find it.
