OK, first look in:


to see if the necessary files are there.  You can do this
with the command:

    ls -lF /usr/lib/pkgconfig/

You should see a whole bunch of file with the .pc extension.

Make sure the ones that "./configure" said you needed are
there. If there is something missing, then you still need
to install a -devel package for that thing.

(Note, you shouldn't need to set PKG_CONFIG_PATH... the
"./configure" script and pkg-config will be already
looking in "/usr/lib/pkgconfig/" for the .pc files.)

I was getting an error message like that when I did NOT
have the right version of the packages.

I'm guessing that this might be your problem too.  So...
could you copy the error messaging into an e-mail
message so that I can see what it says.

See ya
