This is probably a noob question, but so far never needed to deviate from the standard Fedora 16 core development components. I am needing to build clutter-mx project, but this library requires glib-2.0.32. Along with this, glib-2 needs libffi-3.0.11.
I can download the source and build these libraries, however, I am concerned that installing them will break the rest of the system.
The clutter-mx project uses autotools and looks for the glib-2 version.
The questions are:
If I build and install the new components, and something goes wrong, can you get back using yum, or something similar?
Is there a way of getting autotools to look in another directory for the installed headers?
