configure: WARNING:
* I found a copy of pkgconfig, but there is no libart-2.0.pc file 
  You may want to set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable to point to its

configure: WARNING:
* I could not find a working copy of libart-2.0. Check config.log for

   this is the case. Maybe you need to set LDFLAGS and CPPFLAGS 
   so that compiler and the linker can find libart_lgpl_2 and its header 
files. If
   you have not installed libart-2.0, you can get it either from its

  You can find also find an archive copy on


  The last tested version of libart-2.0 is 2.3.17.

Here is how CPPFLAGS variable looks like  : export 
CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/freetype-2.1.10/include/ -I

that Red Hat server.
