I have downloaded an AVI plugin for XMMS from www.xmms.org
It turned out that when I typed ./configure, after a while the console reports the following:
The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found. If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the full path ti glib-config.
configure: error: GLIB >= 1.2.2 not installed - please install first
After that, I downloaded glib-2.10.3.tar.bz2 from http://www.gtk.org
. Well, it turns out that after I installed it, the problem still persists.
