OK, I would never do this on a system that I was running, but I'm having to build on a server that I don't administer. To test out how to do I have a "dummy" project that I'm trying to build on the server. When I run
I get an error that the intltool version is out of date (0.35 is needed, system has 0.31.2). The server is running RHEL 4.8.
The sysadmin says the intltool package on the server can't be upgraded (why?). He has had me install an up-to-date intltool in my home directory. The install seems to work. i.e. I wget the package file, untar it, go into the directory and then run
./configure --prefix=$HOME/intltool make clean make make install
and that all runs with no errors. But now going back to my project and try
and I still get the error about an out-of-date intltool. Running
tells me the system is still using the old version. Is there some environment variable I can set to direct the system to use the intltool version that is in my home directory? I've asked the sysadmin, of course, but I figured I might get a quick answer from someone here.
Alternatively, is there an edit to the configure file in my project which would direct it to use the new intltool install?
