setting PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable, GAIM ./configure


I am trying to get GAIM working with RedHat 9.

./configure gives:

Quote:
configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.4.0 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.4.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
I compiled all the latest versions of glib-2.0 atk and pango from the gtk website into my /usr directory, so I do have the up-to-date versions. How do I set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH? Would it involve ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile?

Thanks for replying Komakino, would that command be typed straight into the shell, or do I need to edit .basrc or bash_profile?

If you do it in the same instance of the shell as you're planning on running ./configure for gaim from, then type it straight into the shell.

If you want that path to always be included, add it to either the .bashrc or /etc/profile (at the bottom)

You may need to install the developer packages for GTK
