try updating the PKG_CONFIG_PATH to /usr/lib/pkgconfig
Or try installing the newer version of cairo if available.

Do you have a reason for building GTK+ from source, rather than using pre-built packages?

the reason was that i had gtk version 1.4 but my application required 2.0.

I downloaded the tar source from net and resolved the problem.

Your distro should have had packages for both GTK+ 1.x and 2.x.
