I just tried the following:
. create a directory `texk.compiled'
. within this directory, say
The last item fails with
checking for kpse_find_file in -lkpathsea... no
configure: error: kpathsea library not found
This version of dvipdfmx requires the kpathsea library and its headers. If
you know where it is you might try setting the LDFLAGS environment variable
with -L pointing to the directory containing libkpathsea.a.
failed for dvipdfmx
Looking up the sources I see the `--enable-tetex-build' variable.
This is completely undocumented...
Since TeXLive doesn't contain libkpathsea I think some users like me
have the desire to build it, to be able to link with external
programs, so I strongly suggest to add documentation for this flag to
kpathsea's (or whatever's) README.
