[parsec-users] Error while compiling VIPS package

I tried the suggestions listed but they didn't work.

I'm not a very regular user of Linux, so forgive me if this sounds a little too simplistic -

I checked the gcc.bldconf for PARSEC, and saw that it contained some export <xxx>="<yyy>" statements for setting the environment variables. I usually use setenv for doing the same from the terminal I use (bash shell?) , so I simply edited the statements from export to setenv <xxx> <yyy> and then tried building using parsecmgmt -a build -p vips -c gcc, and it did work. Could that really have been the problem (using bash shell instead of cshell) ?

Thank you for your comments. That is insightful. PARSEC is already modifying 
the PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable, but it is only appending the path to the PARSEC 
version of glib:


It seems that an entry for the system's glib already exists which is taken by 
pkgconfig instead of the one provided by PARSEC.

Chetan, can you edit gcc.bldconf so that the PARSEC paths appear first? Let's 
see whether this fixes the problem.
