>> At least on 32-bit, the SlackBuild terminates with this error:
>>>   CXXLD    inkscape
>>> /usr/lib/libdbus-glib-1.so.2: undefined reference to
>> `dbus_message_iter_abandon_container'
>>> collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
>>> make[3]: *** [inkscape] Error 1
>> In brief, the workaround is to complete the SlackBuild by hand, inserting
>> "-ldbus-1" near the end of g++ lines that invoke ld (one for inkscape, one
>> for
>> inkview).
>> To get the g++ command line, as root cd to /tmp/SBo/inkscape-0.91 and run
>>> make V=1
>> redirecting output to a file. Edit this file into a shell script e.g.
>>> #!/bin/sh
>>> cd /tmp/SBo/inkscape-0.91/src
>>> g++ -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-align -Wsign-compare -Woverloaded-virtual ...
>> The g++ line above is over 16KB but vi copes. At the end, change
>>  > /usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so -pthread -fopenmp
>>  to
>>  > /usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so -ldbus-1 -pthread -fopenmp
>> Now run make. It will fail similarly when loading inkview. Repeat steps
>> above.
>> Run make again. It will complete.
>> Paste in to your root build xterm enough of the SlackBuild to set all the

>> To be safe, re-issue the mkdir -p at line 60 (I changed it to -pv and it

>> Paste in and execute everything from the make install on line 84 onwards.
>> The g++ line doesn't mention libdbus-glib-1. It seems some other .so is

>> As it happens, I have a tool, findit(*), which can investigate this sort of
>> problem. It agreed with ld:
>>> 23:45:32# findit /usr/lib/libdbus-glib-1.so.2
>> dbus_message_iter_abandon_container
>>> /usr/lib/libdbus-glib-1.so.2: undefined symbol:
>> dbus_message_iter_abandon_container. (dlsym)
>> /usr/lib/libdbus-glib-1.la advertises a number of dependencies:
>>> # Libraries that this one depends upon.
>>> dependency_libs=' /usr/lib/libdbus-1.la -lrt /usr/lib/libgio-2.0.la ...
>> libdbus-1.la only shows -lpthread -lrt as dependencies. Ignoring that:
>>> 23:58:31# findit -ldbus-1 /usr/lib/libdbus-glib-1.so.2
>> dbus_message_iter_abandon_container
>>> Found dbus_message_iter_abandon_container in
>> /usr/lib/libdbus-glib-1.so.2 at 0xb75a9fb0
>> It's been my experience in the past that shared libraries will sometimes

>> I would say the fault lies with whatever library is pulling in
>> libdbus-glib-1.
>> It should also pull in libdbus-1. Maybe someone will "just know" which

>> "it" is.

working fine here using sbopkg
