following the wiki or using the build script committed in extremadura you
should be able to build any of the g-i libs and that is what Sven, Attilio
and myself did. Packaging the libraries, requires alot more; I just got
the impression you are not confident with none of those (and I really do not
mean to offend you anyhow by saying that)

I think it was not appropriate to involve two MLs and Dave to sort out
your doubt: cairo has been successfully used to produce working images
and that is enough to say it is working.

you reported the pb in [1] and the very same day I replied asking for infos
you did not provide until the IRC discussion when you unfairly accused Colin.
I asked you again to provide the infos and within 12 hours Colin merged ppc
stuff from Frans' branch into trunk.
You said the problem was still present [2] (and I had to ask you the very same
questions again [3]), and at the end it was you using the wrong image.
That did piss me off even more and I think such failure reports are all but useful.

right, my fault (i'm sure some posts you bamed it on that patch though)

it's crystal clear. reporting problems the way you did, especially
when many ppl are on different arches, does not help at all IMO, but
go on that way if you think I'm wrong.

that's your own way of reading my message.
I think you did wrong and I told you the reason why I think so without
hiding anything;
feel free to do whatever you want the way you want.
