I have compiled a package that uses autotools as build system (
./configure stops when a package is missing.
For each missing package, I look up its name, then either I do
apt install package or I compile it from source if not available.
Then I run
./configure again and it tells me the name of another unsatisfied dependency.
If there are only one or two missing packages, this is ok. But there were 19!
libmspack-dev libglib2.0-dev libpam0g-dev libssl-dev libxml2-dev libxmlsec1-dev libx11-dev libcunit1-dev libxext-dev libxinerama-dev libxi-dev libxrender-dev libxrandr-dev libxtst-dev libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev libgtk-3-dev libgtkmm-3.0-dev libtool dnet
I would like
./configure to continue on error, and show me all missing packages at once, so I can install them all at once. Otherwise it is long and painful to run
apt install 19 times.
