webkit build problem with hswebkit.h

Reported by: guest Owned by: cjacker
Priority: normal Milestone: 0.11.0
Component: Webkit Version: 0.11.0
Keywords: hswebkit.h Cc: dino@…


Discovered with this setup:

Arch Linux GHC 7.0.3

These installed successfully with cabal-install, can build Hello World app from gtk2hs website:

gtk2hs-buildtools 0.12.3, gtk 0.12.3

Then installed webkit:

$ cabal install webkit

ExitFailure 1

Looks like hswebkit.h isn't getting installed anywhere in an include dir on my system. I was able to install and build against this library after copying it manually myself from the root of the webkit dev dir to /usr/local/include

The correct fix for this is to add "." to the "include-dirs" section of the cabal file (and this has been implemented). Thanks for the report.
