Compile error for AirSnort, SuSe 9.1

I've been getting my wireless laptop all set up, and am very new to Linux. I managed to get KisMET working, all compiled and everything. Then, in an attempt to install AirSnort, I fail.

after running ./, i get this error :

checking how to run the C preprocessor... gcc -E
checking for egrep... grep -E
checking for ANSI C header files... yes
checking for pkg-config... /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
checking for libgnomeui-2.0... Package libgnomeui-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgnomeui-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libgnomeui-2.0' found

configure: error: Library requirements (libgnomeui-2.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

Now, I'm a little confused. I have libgnomeui on the system, a search shows it in two locations: /opt/gnome/lib/ and /usr/share/doc/packages/.

So, I assume I have to "adjust the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable". But, I have no idea what to do.

Any help would be much appreciated!
