Description Alex Walker 2002-09-28 08:04:17 UTC
I was compiling mozilla-1.2a grabbed from mozilla's CVS server.  It was giving  
errors about libIDL, saying that libIDL-config-2 reported version 0.8.0 but  
the library it found was 0.6.8.  If I tried to compile it gave an error on  
IDL.h not found.  The solution was to change the symlink /usr/lib/  
to point to instead of  
I know that mozilla-1.2a isn't in portage, but thought this might worth 
sorting out anyway.  Does libIDL always come as part of ORBit?  Could ORBit 
just depend on the separate libIDL instead? 
Hope this is helpful.

libIDL is for use with ORBit2 . in ORBit it was included and will remain so afaik.

I'm assigning this to me, and closing as a reminder to self. thanks for the
heads up :)
