trying to install the plug-in Gtkhtml2Viewer in claws-mail

Hello. I'm trying to install the plug-in Gtkhtml2Viewer on my Debian Lenny system for claws-mail. I have installed claws-mail 3.7.5 from backports. When I try to install the plug-in, I get the following response:
mark@debian:~/stuff/debs/source/gtkhtml2_viewer-0.27$ ./configure
checking for GNU gettext in libc... yes
checking whether to use NLS... yes
checking where the gettext function comes from... libc
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for CLAWS_MAIL... configure: error: Package requirements (claws-mail >= were not met:

No package 'claws-mail' 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 CLAWS_MAIL_CFLAGS
and CLAWS_MAIL_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Since I have version 3.7.5, I would think that the above cited requirement of "claws-mail >=" would be met. However, for some reason, it states that "No package 'claws-mail' found", which is strange. If anyone has any idea how to fix this, I would appreciate it.

.. "No package 'claws-mail' found", which is strange.
Not strange: "package claws-mail" means /usr/lib/pkgconfig/claws-mail.pc

I.e. claws-mail.pc = "claws-mail package config file".

Solution : See post # 2 , @szamot83.
