The /sbin/ldconfig didn't return any error output this time but it didn't seem to do anything just put me on another prompt line.
when I do the ./configure for the gui source I still get the same error about it not being able to find the test program and to make sure xine-lib is installed,
anything else would be appreciated
You've probably installed xine-lib in /usr/local/lib which is the default option when doing ./configure, so you have 2 choices:
1. Reinstall xine-lib using:
to put the library file in /usr/lib instead, which is automatically searched by ldconfig
2. Add /usr/local/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf if it's not already there.
If it is already there then it may be you're installed too early a version of xine-lib. Make sure the version you're installing is the same or greater version as the one needed by the program.
