GLIBc screwing up


Senario:
SuSE 8.2 hp Pavilion ze1230 laptop 256MB, 20GB, Savage4 16MB

Ok I go to compile gaim and I get all kinds of errors, mostly including this little diddy:

checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0...
*** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.2.3, but GLIB (2.2.1)
*** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best
*** to remove the old version of GLib. You may also be able to fix the error
*** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
*** /etc/ld.so.conf. Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
*** required on your system.
*** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH
*** to point to the correct configuration files
no
configure: error:
*** GLib 2.0 is required to build Gaim; please make sure you have the GLib
*** development headers installed. The latest version of GLib is
*** always available at http://www.gtk.org/.

--------------------

This is real wierd that I reinstalled glib and I got this cockamimi error with glib while configuring gaim. I have installed 2.2.3, 2.2.1 was installed with SuSE after installation. The reason I installed 2.2.3 was that the error was the same except the version conflict. Except the thingy about not being able to find glibc (the other error).

Shouldn't glib provide everything?

Anyway yes this package is installed, it says it provides libraries for the C compiler. This should be enough right? Think there is just a path set wrong somewhere?
