I'm having with a job on the buildfarm.

Probably relevant error:

-- Could NOT find PkgConfig (missing:  PKG_CONFIG_EXECUTABLE) 
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake:319 (message):
  pkg-config tool not found
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  /usr/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake:333 (_pkg_check_modules_internal)
  CMakeLists.txt:6 (pkg_check_modules)

Offending CMake is here:

What is the proper way to check for the BFL package in Groovy that will work on the buildfarm?

It is perfectly fine to use pkg-config to resolve dependencies but if a package does so it also needs to declare that pkg-config is a build dependency in the package.xml file:


Otherwise the build farm does not know that it should be installed.

Hrm. Didn't seem to take:

How should it change? You haven't released a new patch release, right? The recent deb-inc still uses the same upstream code: - no pkg-config dependency in there.
