./configuring libtorrent


Hi guys. i am trying ti install libtorrent by source and while configuring i get the following message:

Code:
checking for OPENSSL... yes
checking for STUFF... configure: error: Package requirements (sigc++-2.0) were not met:

No package 'sigc++-2.0' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables STUFF_CFLAGS
and STUFF_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
i honestly dont know whether i have sigc++-2.0 installed and dont know how to check but even if i do have it, i dont understand the rest. and the man about pkg-config is talking to me like i am a linux guru or soemthing. can please someone point out some guidelines?

Thank you for your time.

Use your package manager to install sigc++-2.0.Make sure to get the dev packages as well.

why

but you could build it from source and make sure that the *.pc file in in /usr/lib/pkgconfig
and you have the auto tools installed

a server/network( office) setup

How do you do that?

is that something like apt-get install libsigc++-2.0-0c2a if so I did that and its still doesnt work oh and btw I did do the dev bit as well but I still get the same error as above, I would appreciate any and all help given here. I seem to have wasted most of the afternoon on this and got nowhere.
