Can't install dvisvgm on ubuntu 12.04
On ubuntu 12.04, dvisvgm isn't in texlive-extra-utils and I'm having trouble
getting the configure script to finish so I can't compile the source.
configure: error: libkpathsea not found, ... [ but its in /usr/lib ]
I did a little digging and the little program used to test libkpathsea is really
old C with no prototypes, but the kpathsea.h now has prototypes ... I sort of hacked
around that, but then configure couldn't find the KPATHSEAVERSION ... so again
I hacked around this and got stuck on libpotrace ... which configure said was missing, but
which wasn't missing.
Have I done something silly? or is dvisvgm broken on 12.04?
