Hi Chris,

Thanks for the report.  Are you sure that was the -2 patch ?

I'm not sure quite what happenned when I created the -1, a full
manual build seemed to work (but probably didn't get all the pc
files correct) so I put it in and gave it a go near the end of my
fresh 8.2 build.  At that point my scripted build failed because
some of the patch did not apply.

With my -2 version, I've just come back to that machine and I can't
find any messages like that in the log.  My log of what got
installed shows the following pkgconfig files:

Yeah, I've been here a long while - we used to prefer to not have to
rerun autofoo.  Thinking back, the first objective of getting the
original working patch was to ensure that everything got changed -
and that meant looking at those files, rather than what is used to
generate them.

BUT: you say there is a -35 release: that is bad news for me (I was
looking at IM git and seeing a lot of fixes for fuzzing), I had
begun to assume the process might be ongoing for a while.  Oh well,
after asking and not getting a reply, I suppose that putting
7.0.7-22 and 6.9.9-34 into the book has provoked the release.

I'll give your patch a go with -35.

For anybody playing along at home - the -22 and -34 versions have
now been removed from the main site, should probably be treated as
