Suse 9.1 and GTK

I have Suse 9.1 Professional and its awesome, but one problem, i have gtk 1 and 2 installed with all other possible file for development including gtk-devel 1 and 2 and i've done online updates, when i try to compile mplayer i get this

Checking for gtk version ...
Error: The GUI requires GTK devel packages (which were not found).

Check "configure.log" if you do not understand why it failed.

Now i checked the log and theres nothing, how do i check if gtk is infact installed or make mplayer find gtk, my friend has exact same setup and had no trouble with mplayer, i even uninstalled and reimstalled the packages from yast, what could be up?

if anyone still have this problem, my work around was to add the path to the gtk-config, aswell as the glib-config file

here is my config line

./configure --with-gtk-config=/opt/gnome/bin/gtk-config --with-glib-config=/opt/gnome/bin/glib-config --enable-live --enable-gui --enable-menu

I am using Suse 9.1 pro
