Dang!  Just when I thought I'd found my niche...

But back to this library question...

It seems like my dependency problems are because the various package
metadata (.pc) files don't exist.  After getting the source and
rebuilding them (libsndfile and fftw), the .pc files were now in place
(/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig) and the gwc build successfully got past those

So, why do I not have the .pc metadata files in my FC3 even though the
actual library files were there (in /usr/lib) all along?  Is this what
Fernando is talking about when

This reminds me that when I installed FC3 from CCRMA, I choose NOT to
install any of the "Development" packages like:
"Development Tools"
"X Software Development"
"Gnome Software Development"

Would installing these have prevented these dependency problems?

I thought I'd try to go back and add them from the FC3 CDs but when I
check them and say "go" I get a "Packages Not Found" error pop-up saying
installation cannot continue because a bunch of packages could not be
found like netpbm, xorg-x11-libs, glib2, pygtk2, gtk2.  So now I can't
even add packages from the original FC3 CDs I installed from.   8^(

help....    8^)
