Hi all,

I have run into a catch 22,

mapserver expects


BUT the fribidi2 download does not appear to build one!

Anyone go any ideas?

-Steve W

wget http://fribidi.org/download/fribidi-0.19.1.tar.gz
tar xzf fribidi-0.19.1.tar.gz
cd fribidi-0.19.1
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig

cd ../mapserver-svn/mapserver

./configure \
   --enable-ignore-missing-data \
   --enable-debug \
   --with-httpd=/usr/sbin/apache \
   --with-proj=/usr \
   --with-agg=/u/software/agg-2.4 \
   --with-fribidi-config=yes \
   --with-gd \
   --with-gdal \
   --with-freetype \
   --with-postgis \
   --without-tiff \
   --with-wmsclient \
   --with-ogr \


checking if FriBidi support requested... yes
checking for fribidi-config... no
