* The XExtensions package is included in a BLFS X Window System installation, but the pkgconfig .pc file FixesExt looks for is not installed. Satisfy the requirement by installing an xextensions.pc file into /usr/X11R6/lib/pkgconfig which can be downloaded from http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/~randy/xextensions.pc.
Install GNOME Magnifier by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0` && make && make install
The GNOME Magnifier package contains magnifier and libgnome-mag.
