[parsec-users] vips and fluidanimate on Solaris/SPARC

Yes, using your response to the previous post on the subject I modified 
the gcc.bldconf to put the PARSEC glibc path first, but undefined 
functions still show up during link time.

Running ./configure outside of the parsec script fails due to finding 
version 2.4 rather than the minimum 2.6 required for glib:
checking for REQUIRED... Requested 'glib-2.0 >= 2.6' but version of GLib 
is 2.4.1

I set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH to the PARSEC glib path, but the configure 
script still does not find it.

-bash-3.00$ echo $PKG_CONFIG_PATH
