Rcairo 1.8 and rsvg 0.18.1


#1

I recently upgraded my cairo bindings to 1.8, and my ruby-gnome2
bindings to
0.18.1.

Everything seems to be working nicely (less leaks!), with one exception:
after loading the rsvg2 bindings, my cairo contexts don’t have the
render_rsvg_handle method added to them.

I’ve traced this issue to the check_cairo refactor in revison 3294.

The temporary solution I used as a workaround was to add the following
line to rsvg/extconf.rb

have_header(“librsvg/rsvg-cairo.h”)

It appears that line doesn’t get called in the new check_cairo function,
so the Makefile generated for the rsvg bindings doesn’t add
-DHAVE_LIBRSVG_RSVG_CAIRO_H to CPP_FLAGS.

You’re right. The check is missing. I’ve fixed it in trunk.
Thanks for reporting!
