True. Or at true in json-c releases beyond 0.10 including the recent stable 0.11.


It should not be "pkg-config json-c" on its own just yet because we will need to support older versions for Debian unstable/testing and more importantly Ubuntu LTS (12.04) for a while. So we'll need to try one and then the other. Patches welcome.

(Assume it compiles fine with the newer json-c. Not tested.)

scons attempts pkg-config json but that should be pkg-config json-c
