>                 URL:

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: build system (Unix/Linux)
>    Affects Versions: 1.1.0
>         Environment: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 with pkgconfig-0.15 RPM installed

> I cannot compile Axis2/C on RHEL4 because:
> checking for LIBXML2... configure: error: The pkg-config script could not be found or
is too old.  Make sure it
> is in your PATH or set the PKG_CONFIG environment variable to the full
> path to pkg-config.
> I don't see the need of version 0.20 or higher, since the installed version, 0.15, is
able to retrieve LIBS and CFLAGS of libxml-2.0 without any problem.
> By the way:
> Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBXML2_CFLAGS
> and LIBXML2_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
> See the pkg-config man page for more details.
> This doesn't work too, since I manually set those variables, here they are, just copied
from "set" output:
> LIBXML2_CFLAGS=-I/usr/include/libxml2
> LIBXML2_LIBS='-lxml2 -lpthread -lz -lm'
> But configure still try to use the pkg-config utility it doesn't like.
> Upgrading the RPM is not an option, this would require an upgraded C library too.
> I solved modifying the configure script of axiom, lowering the required pkg-config version
from 0.20 to 0.15 and works perfectly. I think this fix should be included in next releases.
> Thank you!
