error while building gnome-panel

I've download code for gnome-panel for ubuntu 7.1.

As per instructions I just executed ./configure script and I'm getting following errors. Any idea how to fix this ?
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for PANEL... configure: error: Package requirements (ORBit-2.0 >= 2.4.0 gdk-pixbuf-2.0 >= 2.7.1 pango >= 1.15.4 gtk+-2.0 >= 2.11.3 glib-2.0 >= 2.13.0 libgnome-2.0 >= 2.13.0 libgnomeui-2.0 >= 2.5.4 libbonoboui-2.0 >= 2.1.1 gnome-desktop-2.0 >= 2.11.1 gnome-vfs-2.0 >= 2.14.2 libglade-2.0 >= 2.5.0 gconf-2.0 >= 2.6.1 libgnome-menu >= 2.11.1 dbus-glib-1 >= 0.60) were not met:

No package 'ORBit-2.0' found
No package 'gdk-pixbuf-2.0' found
No package 'pango' found
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
No package 'glib-2.0' found
No package 'libgnome-2.0' found
No package 'libgnomeui-2.0' found
No package 'libbonoboui-2.0' found
No package 'gnome-desktop-2.0' found
No package 'gnome-vfs-2.0' found
No package 'libglade-2.0' found
No package 'gconf-2.0' found
No package 'libgnome-menu' found
No package 'dbus-glib-1' 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 PANEL_CFLAGS
and PANEL_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Install the missing packages.

On Ubuntu, as well as other binary-based distros, you will have to install the development files, not just the runtime files. The development files come in a separate package with the same name as the binary package, but have -dev or -devel appended. For example, to install the runtime files for libglade, you would install libglade2 and to install the development files you would install libglade2-dev.
