Mozilla Development package?

I am running Mandrake 9.0 and I'm sure this is really stupid to ask, but where do I find this thing? I have been to Mozilla's website and when I download a "development package" all I get is the the regular browser. I am trying to install MPlayer's browser plugin for Mozilla and I keep getting an error when I run ./configure saying:

checking for mozilla-plugin... Package mozilla-plugin was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `mozilla-plugin.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'mozilla-plugin' found
I have tried going through RPMDrake 9.0 and I did find a develpment package for mozilla and installed it but still I get this error. Has anyone else been successful at installing this?

BTW, yes I already have mplayer installed and it works fine (except for the constant crashing but that's another thread ).

Thanx in advance! Let me know if you need more details.

Have you tried doign as it sugested?
1) look for mozilla-plugin.pc:
find / -name mozilla-plugin.pc
2) Add the directory path to PKG_CONFIG_PATH
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/path/to/dir:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH"

Yup. Looked all over the HD and couldn't find it anywhere. It was also not in the "Development" tar that I got from Mozilla's site. It's kinda irritating when I can't view imbedded videos in websites.

Thank you for the reply, BTW!
