2008-01-16  Tollef Fog Heen  <>

	* NEWS, Release 0.23

	* check/check-requires-private: Fix up test case.  We want to get
	the private -I option in all cases.

	* pkg.h, pkg.c (string_list_to_string), pkg-config.1, main.c
	(main): Add sysroot support and document same.  Triggered by
	setting PKG_CONFIG_SYSROOT_DIR in the environment.

2007-12-29  Tollef Fog Heen  <>

	* pkg.c (internal_get_package): Don't add the internal-only
	pkg-config package twice.

	* pkg.c (verify_package): Apply patch from Matthias Clasen of
	RedHat to prevent segfaults if a Conflicts line is encountered.

	* popthelp.c: Apply patch from Tom Tromey <> to
	make pkg-config --help print to stdout, not stderr.  Gnome

	* pkg.m4: Don't use --errors-to-stdout in pkg.m4, but rather
	redirect stderr to stdout.  This makes pkg.m4 with old (pre 0.15)
	pkg-config look good, and it makes newer pkg-config with ancient
	pkg.m4 work well.  Gnome #111054

	* Update to glib 1.2.10, adjust lots of the glib patches.  Gnome

2007-06-19  Tollef Fog Heen  <>

	* pkg.m4: Fix bug so it's possible to override variables in case
	pkg-config is not installed.  Thanks to Thomas Klausner for the

	Requires.private, making them much more useful.  Special thanks to
	Matthias Clasen for lots and lots of nagging.  Freedesktop #8788

	* glib-patches/remove-strsignal-prototype.diff: define _GNU_SOURCE
	there to get strsignal prototype, addresses the rest of
	Freedesktop 10652.

	* popt.c: Remove code calling setresuid and setreuid, pkg-config
	should not ever be suid.  Partially addresses Freedesktop #10652

	* glib-patches/autoconf-warning.diff,
	glib-patches/automake-warning.diff Fix path prefix so it applies.

	Also fix automake-warning.diff to not patch on top of another
	patch from glib-patches.

	* glib-patches/no-dist-distclean-files.diff: Fix prefix.

2007-05-30  Tor Lillqvist  <>

	* parse.c: Fix problem on Win32 where the automagic prefix
	replacement logic didn't work. I don't know what change had 
	broken it.
	(pathnamecmp): New Win32-only function. Compares two file
	paths case insensitively and treating backslashes as equal to
	(parse_line): Use it instead of g_ascii_strcasecmp().	

2007-05-29  Tollef Fog Heen  <>

	* pkg.m4: Update URL to pkg-config website.  Thanks to Peter

2007-02-25  Tollef Fog Heen  <>

	the _libs lists to the end to avoid double-reversing either.
	Thanks to J. Scott Berg for both the bug and the fix.  Freedesktop

	* remove AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR as it makes newer
	automakes unhappy.  Freedesktop #10028.

2006-08-16  Tollef Fog Heen  <>

	* Release 0.21 

	* NEWS: Update for 0.21

	* pkg.c: Add internal pkg-config package which can be queried for
	version number, name and URL for now.  More information will be
	added later.  Debian #254289, #287339

	* parse.c (trim_and_sub): Since %{...} has not been used for a
	long time, there is no point in being able to escape %.  However,
	make the code able to escape $ by doubling the $ to $$.

	PKG_CHECK_EXIST.  Thanks a lot for both patches.  Freedesktop

	using gcc.  Freedesktop #4888.

2005-10-17  Tollef Fog Heen  <>

	* pkg.m4: Do AC_MSG_RESULT([no]) even if $4 is set (so we don't
	fail).  Gnome #166537.

	* NEWS: Add missing news and really release 0.20, since I didn't
	get around to actually uploading last night.

2005-10-16  Tollef Fog Heen  <>

	* Release 0.20

	* pkg.m4: use m4_define to avoid duplication of text.
	* pkg.m4: Minor cleanups, use m4_default rather than m4_ifval and
	echo 1>&FD is silly, just use echo >&FD

	* main.c (main): Try to print out all the errors and not just the

	* pkg.m4: Use --short-errors if it's available.

	* pkg.c (get_package_quiet): Add get_package_quiet which is just

	output when a module is not found.

	* pkg.c (packages_get_var): Don't try to chop if string length is
	zero.  Freedesktop #4034.

	* pkg.h: Add missing prototype for enable_private_libs and

2005-08-23  Tollef Fog Heen  <>

	* popthelp.c: char format[10] overflowed always with gcc4, so use
	positional parameters instead.  Thanks to Scott James Remnant for
	pointing me to that solution.  Debian #321961, Ubuntu #13950,
	Freedesktop #2661

2005-08-22  Tollef Fog Heen  <>

	* pkg.c (packages_get_l_libs, packages_get_L_libs): Duplicate
	singly linked list before putting it on list passed to
	string_list_strip_duplicates_from_back to avoid infinite loop when

	(Freedesktop #3006)

2005-04-12  Tollef Fog Heen  <>

	* 0.17.1

2005-04-02  Tollef Fog Heen  <>

	* glib-patches/remove-strsignal-prototype.diff: Remove strsignal

	config.h.win32 too.
	* glib-patches/distcheckfix.diff: Move glibconfig-sysdefs.h and

2005-04-01  Tollef Fog Heen  <>

	Patches provided by Steve Langasek <>

	* Try to detect whether this architecture supports
	inter-library dependencies.  If so, we default to assuming that
	this support is used and link to the minimal set of libraries
	rather than traversing the full depends set.

	* main.c (main): Only recurse if we want a static library list or
	if this architecture doesn't support inter-library dependencies.
	This will probably expose bugs for libraries which declare
	dependencies in their .pc files but don't actually link against
	each other.

	* pkg.c (packages_get_all_libs): Add recurse option
	(packages_get_L_libs): Add recurse option
	(package_get_L_libs): Add recurse option

2005-03-28  Tollef Fog Heen  <>

	* glib-patches/distcheckfix.diff: Add some files to CLEANFILES so
	make distcheck now works.

2005-03-28  Tollef Fog Heen  <>

	* Extra paranoia -- fail if running auto* fails or if
	patching fails.

	* glib-patches/mkinstalldirs.update.diff: Update patch so it
	applies cleanly

	* glib-patches/pthread-config-fix.diff: adjust offsets so patch is
	quiet again

	* Bump to 0.16

	* NEWS: update for 0.16

2005-03-26  Tollef Fog Heen  <>

	* Fix default search path for .pc files.  (This was
	done after the change above but before tagging.  Put here to avoid
	confusion whether this went into the release).

	delimiter-separated list as input and add_search_dir's it.

	initially added.  Moved this to main.c(main)

	* ChangeLog: Add emacs variables to set the date to this
	ChangeLog's standard format

2003-05-09  Havoc Pennington  <>

2003-04-30  James Henstridge  <>

	Popt distribution's COPYING file.  See discussion in bug 84804 for

2003-02-21  James Henstridge  <>

	* pkg.m4: split macro into two parts.  The check for presence of
	pkg-config is now in a helper macro.  The main PKG_CHECK_MODULES

2003-02-19  Tor Lillqvist  <>

	* 0.15

2003-01-15  Havoc Pennington  <>

	* pkg.c (package_init): honor a PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR to move default 
	search dir, useful in cross-compilation for example, bug 
	#103545 fix from David Schleef
2003-01-01  Zack Rusin  <>

	* main.c (main): added --libs-only-other and --cflags-only-other

	* pkg-config.1: apply formatting fixes from  Peter Breitenlohner

2002-10-24  Tor Lillqvist  <>

	* Move the check for Win32 (which tests the $host
	variable) and dependent code later, as it turns out that $host
	isn't normally yet set at that point... (I hadn't noticed as I by
	habit always pass --host=i386-pc-mingw32 to the configure script,
	which sets $host.)

2002-10-11  Havoc Pennington  <>

	* pkg.c (verify_package): fix to properly cast iter->data to char*
	before doing pointer arithmetic, from David Robins

2002-10-10  Havoc Pennington  <>

	* 0.14

2002-10-02  Anders Carlsson  <>

	* pkg.c (add_env_variable_to_list): Don't return NULL, return
	the new list.
	(verify_package): break if we've removed the variable.

2002-09-26  Tor Lillqvist  <>

	* parse.c (get_compat_package): Return NULL right away on
	Windows. There has never been any of these legacy *-config scripts
	distributed for Windows as far as I know.

2002-09-26  Anders Carlsson  <>

	* pkg.c (verify_package): Use strncmp when checking for
	the -I prefix.

2002-09-19  Havoc Pennington  <>

	* 0.13

2002-09-19  Anders Carlsson  <>

	* pkg.c: (verify_package):
	Don't call g_free on strings returned from g_getenv.
Tue Sep 17 14:11:51 2002  Jonathan Blandford  <>

	* pkg.c: strip out C_INCLUDE_PATH and CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH if they
	exist, as this can break -Werror on some newer gcc versions.

2002-09-13  Tor Lillqvist  <>

	* (USE_INSTALLED_GLIB): Seems that the automake
	version used by Havoc doesn't recognize pkg_config_CFLAGS and
	pkg_config_LDFLAGS, thus failing builds on Win32 directly from the
	tarball. Set included_glib_includes and pkg_config_LDADD instead,

	* findme.c (X_OK): If X_OK undefined, define as 1, always, not
	only if G_OS_WIN32, which is never defined here. Fixes a corner
	case on Win32 with MSYS and mingw where configure as included in
	the release tarball for some reason doesn't find unistd.h.

	Improve Windows behaviour: Make it even easier to install
	developer packages in random locations, without having to modify
	the .pc files. Don't set "prefix" globally, instead override it
	for each .pc file parsed, if the path where the .pc file is seems
	to be the standard .../lib/pkgconfig.

	* main.c (main): Add search directories also from two Registry
	keys, in addition to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment
	variable. Don't define prefix globally.

	* parse.c (parse_line): Instead, if a .pc file is in
	/foo/bar/lib/pkgconfig, define prefix as /foo/bar for that package

	* main.c: (Win32): Add option --dont-define-prefix on Windows. The
	option prevents pkg-config from automatically defining an
	overriding value for the "prefix" variable.

	Unless this option is used, set "prefix" to pkg-config's
	installation directory, i.e. assume that the packages whose
	configuration files are found in the same tree where
	pkg-config.exe itself is, also have been configured to use the
	same prefix. This means that a typical "developer package"
	containg a subtree of headers, libraries, etc, including .pc
	files, can be installed in any random location. As long as
	pkg-config.exe is installed the same tree, things just should

2001-09-30  Tor Lillqvist  <>

	Changes for "pure" Win32 (without Cygwin or similar) support. The
	most important differences compared to pkg-config on Unix are:

	We don't use hardcoded PKGLIBDIR paths but deduce the
	installation prefix at runtime.

	Use the normal GLib DLL, not a private copy. Yes, this does
	introduce a circular dependency, but that can be worked around.
	* README.win32: New file.

	* Check for Win32. If so, define USE_INSTALLED_GLIB,
	and don't configure in the included glib-1.2.8. Set GLIB_CFLAGS
	and GLIB_LIBS assuming that GLib is installed in the same location
	pkgconfig will be. Check for dirent.h, unistd.h and sys/wait.h

	* If USE_INSTALLED_GLIB, use the GLIB_* values set
	above, and don't make in the glib-1.2.8 subdir.

	* Use perl -p -i.bak, works better on Win32 (and Cygwin).

	* *.c: Conditionalize inclusions of unistd.h and sys/wait.h. 
	* findme.c: Define X_OK on Win32 if necessary.

	* parse.c
	* popthelp.c: Minor Win32 portability ifdefs.

	* parse.c: No need to include <windows.h>. 

	* pkg.c: Don't hardcode PKGLIBDIR, but use
	g_win32_get_package_installation_directory() to deduce it.
	(scan_dir): Make a temp copy of dirname with potential superfluous
	trailing slash removed. The Win32 opendir implementation doesn't
	always like those.

	* pkg.h: If USE_INSTALLED_GLIB, include <glib.h> instead of

	* popt.c (execCommand): Don't compile on Win32.

	* poptconfig.c (configLine): Don't bother with the "exec" stuff on
	Win32, too complex to port, at least for now.
	(poptReadDefaultConfig) Don't bother compiling on Win32, this
	function isn't even called.
