./configure error


if i try to run the "./configure" command i get this:

Code:
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for working aclocal-1.4... missing
checking for working autoconf... missing
checking for working automake-1.4... missing
checking for working autoheader... missing
checking for working makeinfo... missing
checking for intltool >= 0.20... 0.27.2 found
checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl
./configure: line 1728: GNOME_COMPILE_WARNINGS: command not found
checking for pkg-config... no
*** The pkg-config script could not be found. Make sure it is
*** in your path, or set the PKG_CONFIG environment variable
*** to the full path to pkg-config.
*** Or see http://www.freedesktop.org/software/pkgconfig to get pkg-config.
configure: error: Library requirements (libgnomeui-2.0 libglade-2.0 libwnck-1.0 >= 2.1.5) 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 found some packages of the list but most of them dont work.
so i get this now:
Code:
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for working aclocal-1.4... missing
checking for working autoconf... found
checking for working automake-1.4... missing
checking for working autoheader... found
checking for working makeinfo... missing
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... configure: error: cannot run C compiled  programs.
If you meant to cross compile, use `--host'.
See `config.log' for more details.
not getting that much further.

so where can i get these packages, and how do i solve this error's

im running on a SuSe 9.0 system...
the rest of the system can be found on an other thread...


thanks in advance/

Well PoezeBeest, i've get same error ("cannot run C compiled programs...") when compiling any sources.

Guess (because before that everything was working pretty fine) that it was some kinda problem with some YOU update... but i'm not sure...

I've done so --> reinstall "autoconf", "automake", "make", and "gcc" from YAST2 software install program... But things still not worked...

Program sources (simplecdrx was my last try) were located at a different partition than $HOME one (but both were ReiserFS)... I copied tarball file to my $HOME directory, extract and compiled it well...
So, the problem is apparently fixed... But i don't know what caused it...

Finally, for gnu/linux masters at config.log i remember it was som kinda "not permission for a.out" message (PoezeBeest, if you still haven't fixed it (and before you try it reinstalling those packages) please post your config.log...

P.D.: My english is really awful, sorry
