Attempting to build sugar (Between the work-times)

I've been taking breaks every little while to try to get the Sugar environment for the One Laptop Per Child project to build on Gentoo. So far this has just been a matter of having the system build lots of libraries. No big deal, it comes down to a single emerge command to get xulrunner and gtk-doc installed.

The problems start with the gecko-embed project. Running ./ winds up failing with missing macro definitions. Running a few more times ./ m4_pattern_allow and then bare ./ gets me further along (i.e. configure starts), but then configure dies with this:

    Have you tried to follow the instructions on the OLPC Wiki?<br /><br />

    That's the document I started from, was trying to create the equivalent for Gentoo users.

    You just need to add ACLOCAL_FLAGS="$ACLOCAL_FLAGS -I m4" to the file. Do not add --with-gecko=xulrunner or configure will fail!

    Oh! Ignore the not adding --with-gecko=xulrunner, i just forgot to emerge xulrunner.
