[Ipe-discuss] ipe on RHEL

Dear Otfried and list,

     ipe looks like exactly what I need, and I have been trying 
unsuccessfully to build it for a while now.

     On RHEL6 (Scientific Linux 6 in my case) the package manager says 
lua5.1 is the most recent, and the ipe build fails looking for lua5.2. 
I removed lua5.1 and built lua5.2 from source, but because it was built 
from source it appears not to create the files (lua5.2.pc specifically). 
  I've tried the fixes for Fedora, but RHEL is behind Fedora in 
libraries, and I can't it right.

    How can I trick ipe into thinking lua5.2 was installed by yum 
(possibly creating lua5.2.pc in the appropriate directory?) or get an 
version of ipe compatible with lua5.1 on RHEL (el6.x86_64 specifically)?

Thanks, Dave
