Testing a Windows build

Hi All,

I have just updated the Packaging dir on a Windows XP Machine vi svn update.

I then run install.sh.

It fixed a lot of conftest.c file not found erros which previously resulted 
in install.sh not running to completion.

Now I get the following

Extracting goffice-0.7.2.tar.bz2 ... done
patching file `goffice/Makefile.am'
patching file `goffice/utils/go-file.c'
patching file `goffice/gtk/goffice-gtk.c'
libtoolize: `/C/soft/autotools/share/aclocal/libtool.m4' is serial 48, less 
than 52 in `aclocal.m4'
To remain compatible, you should update your `aclocal.m4' by running 

snip -----------------------------------------------

) were not met:

Requested 'libgsf-1 >= 1.14.9' but version of libgsf-1 is 1.14.5

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GOFFICE_CFLAGS
and GOFFICE_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

What do I do to fix this?

Yours sincerely Stephen Grant Brown
