Summary0002208: fontconfig=No (missing fontconfig-config)
I'd like to generate Graphs with the same Fonts, like on my local SuSE Linux 11.1 client, but on a SuSE-Linux 9.3 server. Therefore I try to compile and install the newest Graphviz version on this server. After the ./configure execution amongst others I've got the message "fonftconfig: No (missing fontconfig-config)". Then in consequence I successfully installed the newest fontconfig package but this didn't adjust anything. I'd be very happy about any helpful suggestion.

The configure script delivers an error message: "pkg-config did not find a fontconfig.pc, looking for fontconfig-config", which also cannot be found. Therefore the configure script responds at least with "fontconfig library not available". Even after a complete new compiling, (re-)building and installing of fontconfig on the server machine. Can you help me with any hint, what I can do?...

You should take a look in the config.log file to find more details as to what went wrong. I believe in this case configure was looking for configure information about your installed fontconfig library. It first looks for fontconfig.pc and, if it can't find that, it looks for fontconfig-config. As you have installed a recent version of fontconfig, the fontconfig.pc file should exist. If it is a non-standard place, you can add that directory to an environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH. Failing all of this, configure supports the environment variables FONTCONFIG_CFLAGS and FONTCONFIG_LIBS, which can be used to specify where to find the fontconfig include files and libraries.

If the above suggestions don't help, please attach your config.log file and let us know where the fontconfig library was installed.

I'm not an expert at the various flavors of Linux, but I'm a bit surprised fontconfig was part of the distribution.
