This is a collection of tips concerning installation of Inkscape 0.48.1 on Solaris 10 10/08 x86.
Inkscape compiles pretty smoothly. There is also an informative page in the Inkscape Wiki detailing further aspects of the installation procedure. (Note however that the entry describing Inkscape 0.48 on that page refers to compilation with a 64 bit memory model, whereas I used the default.)
Inkscape requires a number of prerequisite packages. Below is a list of packages along with build notes which I hope is fairly complete. If GNU utilities are mentioned below – and no version is indicated – this refers to the following versions:
GCC, if used, refers to gcc-4.5.2 with the GNU assembler and the Sun linker.
In this example, all packages are installed in the /usr/local/dist hierarchy. Whenever g++ is used to build libraries, these are installed in appropriately named subdirectories, to clearly indicate the use of a non-standard ABI.
|GNU gettext-0.18||Solaris Studio 12.2||Only built shared version:
./configure CC=cc --disable-static --prefix=/usr/local/dist gmake MAKE=gmake install
|glib-2.22.4, pixman-0.20.2, cairo-1.10.2, pango-1.26.2, atk-1.29.4, gtk+-2.18.7||Solaris Studio 12.2||
|libsigc++-2.2.9||gcc-4.5.2||Configuration and installation:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/dist/libsigc++-g++4 MAKE=gmake gmake gmake install
|glibmm-2.22.2, cairomm-1.9.8, pangomm-2.26.3, gtkmm-2.18.2||gcc-4.5.2||
|t1lib-5.1.2||Solaris Studio 12.2||uneventful|
|lcms-1.19||Solaris Studio 12.2||Too old versions (e. g., 1.13) don't work. I found 1.19 a good compromise which worked with both openjpeg as well as Inkscape.|
/configure --prefix=/usr/local/dist/poppler-0.16.4-g++ \ --disable-abiword-output\ --disable-poppler-qt4 \ CPPFLAGS='-I/usr/local/dist/include' \ LDFLAGS='-R/usr/local/dist/lib -L/usr/local/dist/lib' \ --enable-xpdf-headers gmake gmake install
|gsl-1.14||Solaris Studio 12.2||uneventful|
|gc6.8||Solaris Studio 12.2||Only built static version:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/dist/gc-static \ CC=cc CXX=CC --disable-shared --enable-static make make install
|boost_1_46_1||—||Only needs to be extracted, not compiled. In this example, it is extracted to $HOME/src/boost_1_46_1.|
After compiling these prerequisites, there is little left to do. The Inkscape source code needs to be patched, however. I used this patch which is a slight variation of the one suggested in the aforementioned Wiki page. (The original recommendation of including cmath instead of math.h did not work for me.)
Runpaths are set with -R, so that no crle or LD_LIBRARY_PATH setting is required.
The PKG_CONFIG_PATH setting used for building gtkmm should be retained. The directory where poppler is installed is added to it below.
gpatch -p2 < inkscape-0.48.1-sol10.patch PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/dist/poppler-0.16.4-g++/lib/pkgconfig\ :$PKG_CONFIG_PATH ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/dist/inkscape-0.48.1 \ CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/dist/gc-static/include"\ " -I$HOME/src/boost_1_46_1"\ " -I/usr/local/dist/poppler-0.16.4-g++/include" \ LDFLAGS='-L/usr/local/dist/gc-static/lib -lintl'\ ' -R/usr/local/dist/libsigc++-g++4/lib'\ ' -R/usr/local/dist/gtk2mm-g++4/lib'\ ' -R/usr/local/dist/poppler-0.16.4-g++/lib' gmake -j 3 install-strip
