Installation of Libglade

The make command attempts to open an X display during the compile, so an X server must be running during this process.

Install libglade by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/opt/gnome-1.4 --disable-gtk-doc &&

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install
