problem compiling gaim (GTK+ 2.0 not found)
I have been running Debian for a few weeks and have previously built the Gaim chat client from source. I reinstalled the OS and now can't get Gaim to compile. When I type, ./configure, it stops with the following error:
checking for GTK+ - version >= 2.0.0... no
*** Could not run GTK+ test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occurred. This usually means GTK+ is incorrectly installed.
*** GTK+ 2.0 is required to build Gaim; please make sure you have the GTK+

I have checked, and packages for GTK+ 2.0 and its development headers are installed. Can the configuration program simply not find them? If so, how do I let it know where they are? Does Debian place them in unsual directories?
This is somewhat frustrating, because I successfully compiled Gaim only a few weeks ago. I guess I need to document my own changes to the system. Any help is appreciated.
