Trying to follow your procedure for creating customized reports. I had done so 
under RH 8, kernal 2.4.20. Recently upgraded to Fedora Core 3 (after very 
severe system crash totally corrupted the X Window system). 

In attempting to create the custom reports I got as far as issuing the command 
"make install" from the "standard-reports" directory. Of course, I got the 
error message that 

"make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop."

Since I had not done the "./configure" from the base gnucash directory. Issued 
that command and got the following error message from 'configure"

checking for glib-config... no
checking for GLIB - version >= 0.99.7... no
*** The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found
*** If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in

configure: error: Cannot find glib. Check config.log

did a "locate glib" and got the following:


and lots more lines. So glib is existant, but "glib-config" doesn't exist.

Is there a way to generate glib-config?

Then the "configure" utility will (hopefully) work, generate the necessary 
make file for the reports and I can generate my custom reports again.
