Building gexiv2-0.12.1 on macOS with Exiv2 v0.27.2 RC2
This is a courtesy/update discussion. I think things are working. Your email today caused me to try to build your latest on macOS with Exiv2 v0.27.3 RC2 which will be released this week.
I did have trouble building because I don't have pkg-config on my laptop. The build reported "Cannot find Exiv2. And another panic when it didn't find the vala compiler. Both were fixed with:
$ sudo port install pkgconfig $ sudo port install vala
Followed by happiness:

I'm interested in using gexiv2 as a substitute for pyexiv2. The code on this page doesn't work on the current project. I guess the page is stale (there's a link that does a 404). Do you have any documentation about using gexiv2 from python?
