Whilst attempting to compile poppler from source I get the error
Package "fontconfig" not found.
I have found a lot of other resources advertising that this can be fixed by installing both
libfontconfig1-dev to get the libraries, but I still got the error.
Trying to install
fontconfig from source failed at the
make step and I've found no resources on how to fix (whole host of C errors).
If I have
fontconfig on the system (and
apt seems to suggest I do) how can I use it when running
./configure for a package?
