Have not managed to package Pango - can anyone assist me in finding out what is going wrong? Basically the package failed the install stage of the rules script if installed using an alternate path (specified using prefix or DESTDIR). So I set the prefix to `pwd`/debian/tmp/usr and installed just using 'make install', same result - it was not copying some libraries properly (libpangoft). The package installs fine into /opt/gnome2 with the GLib packages hosted above.

There might be some packaging bugs in the GLib package that might catch you out if you try recompiling the source package (which you have to unless you are running libc6 2.2.3-5), more than welcome to get feedbacks and suggestions. Basically the libraries apart from libglib might be missing from the package, no idea why at all, but if the .debs were created manually (fakeroot debian/rules {build,install,libglib1.3-dev, libglib1.3}) it works just fine.

Thanks in advance,
