Summary0014517: Can't compile against GTK anymore
DescriptionCompiling project against GTK widgetset now gives this link error:

"can't locate file for: -lglib-1.2.0"

In 0.9.26 I believe Lazarus always passed -Fl/usr/X11R6/lib -Fl/sw/lib to FPC, with the assumption that this is where X11 and GTK are located. This also still appears to be the assumption of the wiki documentation:

I have dozens of test projects that I compile from a script with lazbuild. It appears as though I will need to manually add the -Fl's to these projects.

Also, the instructions for telling Lazarus where GTK is in the wiki are not correct, at least this does not work on Tiger:


This wiki tip also will not work if Lazarus is no longer passing /sw/lib to FPC:

sudo ln -s /opt/local /sw

These paths have been removed in r15826 after the change to carbon, and before the 0.9.26 release.

As you noted, compilation is succesful, if -Fl/sw/lib is added manually.

I will ask about adding those extra paths again.
