"SDL_mixer.pc" missing, making it impossible to use autoconf to compile software that depends on SDL_mixer.

Bug #928792 reported by Raúl Santos

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
sdl-mixer1.2 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


`pkg-config --libs SDL_mixer`


Package SDL_mixer was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `SDL_mixer.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'SDL_mixer' found

I checked and there's no SDL_mixer.pc where it should be: /usr/lib/pkgconfig/SDL_mixer.pc.

I'm running Natty but the same problem affects Oneiric but it seems to be corrected on Precise (the file is there: http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/i386/libsdl-mixer1.2-dev/filelist).
