Help Compiling Taglib: missing 'config.h'

Hi all,

Thanks for the replies. I'm trying to keep my app source as 'portable' as
possible (outside of using Qt :p) and I want to include any external libs
like TagLib statically (ie not install them in the system). Scott, what did
you mean by setting up includes for *all* the source dirs? I'm not directly
including each taglib source file in like main.cpp or anything, I compiled
the TagLib source as a static lib which I then link to. In this case
shouldn't I just have to link to 'tag.h' and 'fileref.h'?
