Svn-4661: gr-qtgui not building on NetBSD

G’day,

configure detects qt3 but fails to find qwt-5.0.1 and hence won’t build
gr-qtqui. It appears that the configure script uses the pkg-config
utility to
retrieve metainformation about installed libraries. However, qwt does
not
install a pkg-config metadata file. Does qwt install a pkg-config
metadata
file on Linux?

The qwt files are currently installed in ${PREFIX}/{include/qwt,lib} and
the
plugin in ${QTDIR}/plugin/designer.

gr-qtgui built fine after manually creating a pkg-config metadata file
for
qwt. I believe that I shouldn’t need to do this.

No.

First, the new gr-qtgui component is a work-in-progress, so it doesn’t
do anything much useful yet (other than in a very specific test scenario
used last week during the OFDM bash).

The configure script is incomplete. The group was using a manually
created qwt.pc file as a substitute to fishing this out autotools
macros. Bob McGwier will be updating the .m4 file to work without the
.pc file, and then it should start working on several platforms.

Correct, see above.

Sorry, I didn’t realise that gr-qtgui wasn’t ready for public release
yet. It
caught my attention as I’ve been writing some widgets using pyqt.
