cairo hidden dependency on gtk2hs-buildtools
|Reported by:||guest||Owned by:||duncan|
The easiest way to reproduce is run a cabal install cairo into a clean environment (with hsenv).
Cannot find gtk2hsC2hs Please install `gtk2hs-buildtools` first and check that the install directory is in your PATH (e.g. HOME/.cabal/bin). Failed to install cairo-0.12.4 cabal: Error: some packages failed to install: cairo-0.12.4 failed during the configure step. The exception was: ExitFailure 1
As a workaround I had to include this dependency in my packages dependency list, but that doesn't solve it because I can't force the order in which packages are compiled; so I'd be happy if someone could slap in the dependency in cairo and reupload the package :)
