Problem with compiling


I'm trying to compile GIMP 2.8.2 and I need a more recent version of several libraries to do this. My first problem is compiling gegl, the problem is as follows:

Code:
configure: error: Package requirements (babl >= 0.1.10) were not met:

No package 'babl' 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 BABL_CFLAGS
and BABL_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
Even though I have just installed babl 0.1.11 and removed babl 0.1.2 which is provided with Slackware 13.37.

What do I need to do to make pkg-tool recognize that this has actually been installed? I have tried to install babl in the default location but also under /usr/lib.

I can modify PKG_CONFIG_PATH, and this actually works, but how is this done properly?

If you really need Gimp 2.8.2, why not just use Slackware 14, it has that version by default.
