Why I can't find any devel pakages?

for Example, gtk2-devel and gnomeui-devel. Without these pakages, How can I compile my software from soure? In arch's current and extra server, there are not such pakages.

You might want to search for libgtk+2.0 et al. The package names are along the lines of libgtk+2.0_0-devel-2.5.6-0.2.mdk10.1.i586.rpm.

Oh, thinks. I can find the header (.h) files in /opt/gnome/include now.
But how can I make the ./condigure know the headers' location? Shall I make a soft link to /usr/include?

i assume, that you are writing a PKGBUILD for the thing you want to compile ...

for gnome (you mentioned /opt/gnome/...), there is a profile file that should be used for building-process. an example build() for PKGBUILD would look like this:

build() {
  [ "$GNOMEDIR" = "" ] && source /etc/profile.d/
  cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-$pkgver
  ./configure --prefix=/opt/gnome \
  make all || return 1
  make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg  install
