Subject: Fails to install on Debian 9 (Stretch)

With libunibilium installed, this module fails to install with: Looking for pkg-config unibilium... found OS unsupported - unable to find GNU libtool I would assume that Alien::libtermkey includes everything that is needed to build the bundled libtermkey. Also, after apt-get install libtermkey-dev the module still fails with Looking for pkg-config unibilium... found OS unsupported - unable to find GNU libtool I would expect the module here to recognize that we won't need its bundled version and thus install. This prevents installation of Tickit ...

Well it has the source, sure, but it still needs the actual build tools on the platform in question - gcc, make, libtool, etc.. Show quoted text

Ah now that's a good point. If it's going to use the pkg-config built version it won't need the libtool itself to build it. I should fix that. -- Paul Evans

Aaah - so this is where I misunderstood what libtool is about. I thought it was another incarnation of pkg-config. So the only valid point in my report is that it doesn't recognize if the library is already available on a system. Show quoted text

In brief: libtool is a sort of portability wrapper around the various system C compilers, linkers, and other tools required for building a library. You invoke libtool in a standard "pretend it's the GNU ELF toolchain" way, and it translates for the system in question. It massively simplifies making portable Makefiles. Show quoted text
