airsnort, gtk, GAIM man your all over the place tonight, your posts are all having the same error. It comes down to gtk being installed. And your on that part as we speak from what we talked about in your last posting. So let us know;

Perhaps you should add the directory containing `glib-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'glib-2.0' found

configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.1.4 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.0.1) 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@localhost gtk+-2.2.4]# make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
[root@localhost gtk+-2.2.4]# cd /usr/bin/pkg-config
bash: cd: /usr/bin/pkg-config: Not a directory

I would get the cd's and install all the dependencies to the programs your trying to run and configure.
