Description Justin Dearing 2013-09-14 17:05:45 UTC
If I configure ValaBindings on a machine with mono, but not mono-addins installed I get the following:

Configuring package: extras/ValaBinding
checking for MONO_ADDINS... yes
checking for MONO_ADDINS_SETUP... configure: error: Package requirements (mono-addins-setup >= 0.3) were not met:

No package 'mono-addins-setup' found

However, mono-addins-setup is one of the externals provided by monodevelop. Its not currently built automatically by mono-develop. Shouldn't it be built automatially, and the check removed from ValaBinding configuration?

We don't support this binding anymore.
