Homebrew troubles with v0.6


#1

I can’t install packages on 0.6 because my homebrew doesn’t work. I’ve already reported the issue, but it seems to be a more general problem with my setup, so maybe someone here has an idea of what the problem is.

The build process stop with autoreconf, but doesn’t provide a clear error message:

==> autoreconf -i -f

-f

ERROR: failed process: Process(`/Users/jbieler/.julia/v0.6/Homebrew/deps/usr/bin/brew install --ignore-dependencies glib`, ProcessExited(1)) [1]

Log here: https://gist.github.com/jonathanBieler/2aef2b746b24f88ae5a5dd5213937f29

I went thourgh the Troubleshooting page and I updated my OS X to 10.12 and Xcode to 8.3.3 but that hasn’t made any difference. Any clue ?


#2

I tried to remove the --ignore-dependencies (/Users/jbieler/.julia/v0.6/Homebrew/deps/usr/bin/brew install -v glib) and he manages to build glib. But then if I try to install cairo I get a

checking for pkg-config... no
configure: error: pkg-config >=  required but not found (http://pkgconfig.freedesktop.org/)

Even though pkg-config is installed:

shell> /Users/jbieler/.julia/v0.6/Homebrew/deps/usr/bin/brew info pkg-config
pkg-config: stable 0.29.2

Is julia’s homebrew looking in a specific path for executable ? this looks like a path issue.

Like this?


#4

Ok, so pkg-config is in the brew_prefix bin’s folder, it correctly get added to ENV[“PATH”] but it yet cannot be found during the build process:
