   From g-wrap.SlackBuild:

./configure \
   --prefix=/usr \
   --sysconfdir=/etc \

   When I built it manually, I used the same prefix, yet 'locate g-wrap'
finds it in:


   Part of the problem is that here, glib.h is in /usr/include/glib-2.0/ and
configure (or make) is looking in /usr/include/glib/ which does not exist.

   So, I modified configure.ac to reflect that directory name and ran
autoconf. Then re-ran g-wrap.SlackBuild. Perhaps I also need to export an
addendum to PKG_CONFIG_PATH because now make still fails in finding glib.h.
What a PITA.
