We've just discovered that this fix is not enough. Actually the new
directories are due to the "multi-arch" feature of Debian systems,
that allows to install libraries from other (foreign) architectures
than the one the machine is (the classic example, i386 libraries on a
the fix included to look up in additional directories is currently
only for X11, while for example Debian has fftw3 that's
multi-arch-ified and thus will fail to be detected.
Could this fix be extended to include all other things that are
checked? for reference the bug in Debian is ; there was also a
patch in previous versions, that was using gcc to get the
multi-arch paths - you might use as a reference, or to implement
It would be awesome is such support would end up in 1.6.2 .
