Can't install "glibmm" library. "configure" script can't find "sigc++-2.0&q
 
Everytime I run "./configure" in glibmm dir I get the following:
Code:

. . .
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for sigc++-2.0 >= 2.0.0 glib-2.0 >= 2.6.0 gobject-2.0 >= 2.6.0 gmodule-2.0 >= 2.6.0... Package sigc++-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `sigc++-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'sigc++-2.0' found

configure: error: Library requirements (sigc++-2.0 >= 2.0.0 glib-2.0 >= 2.6.0 gobject-2.0 >= 2.6.0 gmodule-2.0 >= 2.6.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
root@darkstar:/home/apps/glibmm/glibmm-2.6.1#

After I
Code:

PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
where "sigc++-2.0.pc" is placed, I get the same error message.
Can anyone help me? I'm really at a loss.
Thanks.

PS: "config.log" is available here

I seem to remember I had similar difficulty. I think I solved it by installing sigc++ into /usr/lib instead of /usr/local/lib

Thanks, Komakino! That was the problem.
