When installing EMBOSS recently I get a load of errors due to libraries not found.
The main problem is that I have an old version of libz but no lib gd in my system libraries and EMBOSS looks there first to try to locate these libraries. I have the correct versions installed elsewhere.
Deleting -lgd -lz -lpng from CFLAGS in the ajax directory Makefile works but is an ugly solution and not really ideal.
Are there any suggestions for setting the library search path or am I missing something really obvious? A) There are the
flags. Did you try them? If the libraries are in /opt/png/lib then set "dir" to /opt/png i.e. one level above the "lib" directory.
