Uh. You downloaded the gzipped tarball, right? and you unpacked it to a new directory? Dump that directory and unpack the tarball again. Should take all of about 6 to 10 seconds, not counting the unzip time, which could be up to 30 or more seconds. I had to do this again yesterday to get gtk+ to see the correct version of qtlib. The procedure went like this.
try to build gtk+ from source, but qtlib did not meet the minimum requirements.
built qtlib from source
tried to ./configure and recompile gtk+, but it still said no go. messed with .config and all that. said 'cap it' and rm -r the source folder.
uzipped the source again, ./configured and compiled no probs.
About the only reason I can see for not dumping the source dir is if you customized a lot of the .configure stuff yourself.
