I thought I had run autoconf before building the package. configure.in is correct, so running autoconf should fix this problem. > Perhaps this is a silly question, but after actually > compiling the whole stuff -- where can I find a working > demo program that uses this now? there are demos distributed with GTK+ and these are also included in our package.

This app can be multi-threaded and it can open multiple windows. The window decorations you see on the screenshots are provided by GTK+ and were added for the linuxfb port of GDK.
