When trying to compile Luke Smith's fork of st on voidlinux, I get the error

Package fontconfig was not found in the pkg-config search path. Perhaps you should add the directory containing "fontconfig..pc"

When using the find command, I don't find the .pc file anywhere, however running xbps-install shows it's already installed.


Very late reply but try installing the base-devel package from the void linux repository.

xbps-install base-devel

Everything should compile afterwards.
