Apparently, the code is looking for pangox library:


which has been removed from Pango ages ago.

Gnash does not actually use pango directly at all. It looks like it was added for static linking against GTK when not using pkg-config but it was not updated or limited to non-pkg-config GTK builds (pkg-config would provide the necessary transitive dependencies automatically).

The proper solution would be removing all the pango checks and relying on pkg-config but as a quick hack you can replace pangox for pango in the macro.

On latest NixOS, I am getting

          ERROR: No Pango development package installed!
                 Install it from http://pango.org
                 or .deb users: apt-get install libpango1.0-dev
                 or .rpm users: yum install pango-devel

configure: error: Please install required packages

even though I have Pango headers available.

Configure flags:
