Whose time is more important, that of a developer or that of a legion of users? Why, that of a developer, of course! Because I'm a developer and I don't want to waste two minutes of my time by saving two minutes of hundreds of people's time!

Nope. It said "config.xml". It did not say where such a file might be.
About spending time to inform the users: we've had an update notice (including details on where to find the file) up for a few weeks in both a special notice on the website as well as the news displayed on client startup. Only after the 0.0.22 release was available, which defaults to the new updatehost value, we removed the notice on the website and replaced it with a more brief note accompanying the 0.0.22 announcement. Meanwhile, the in-game notice
is still in place and does indicate the location of the config file to anybody who still has to edit it.
So much for your whole argument about who's time is more important.
Code: Select all
checking for gcnGuichanVersion in -lguichan... no
configure: error: *** Unable to find Guichan library (guichan.sf.net)
As for the above error. While you may say that Guichan 0.5.0 is indeed installed, this doesn't change the fact that the compiler couldn't find it. Whenever such a problem occurs when you run configure, check the file "config.log" in the same directory for more detailed information on what went wrong.
Note that the latest release, 0.0.22.1, requires Guichan 0.6.0. If your distribution doesn't have this yet (likely), then you can stick with version 0.0.22. In any case, your current version (0.0.21) is very outdated and bound to give you some compatibility problems. You can also try urging your distribution to update their version of TMW.
