Is version 7.4 tested to work? I mean it stands in the
developement-book. And I first tried it with 7.4 but I got the same
error-message so I decided to change to a tested 7.2.

Thats what I wanted but if it takes some time to build software using
x11, I can only learn from it and thats one of my main-goals

But what?

"echo $PKG_CONFIG_PATH && ./configure $XORG_CONFIG" returns
and then starts to configure and ends with the same error message.
I tried pkg-config-0.22 and pkg-config-0.23 with glib2 if this
information helps.
