Description Lawren Burch 2003-05-09 21:35:25 UTC
pygtk requires the pango libraries, but the ebuild doesn't list pango as a
dependancy.  I had to manually emerge pango.  In addition I had to manually
create a symlink like so:

ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

pygtk would not build without this file

reassigning. dunno why it was assigned to roughneck in the first place.

well, you didn't say which version of pygtk or pango you were having problems with?

pygtk-1.99* are the ones that need pango, and they have that as a dep already (don't know when that was added or whether they always had them before). 

as for pango missing, that should be created by pango. try re-emerging pango because it seems like a broken installation on your machine.
