configure can't find gtk-config


I'm trying to build xmps0.2.0 on my fresh install of redhat 8.0 download edition. When I run ./configure as root, I get a message telling me that GTK is not installed. I have installed GTK, the devel stuff, and everything I can think of, but still get the error, even when i set the GTK_CONFIG enviroment variable specifically.

The problem isn't specific either - I get exactly the same thing for sdl-config, and have tried the same things.

gdk-config does in fact exist in usr/bin.

The fact that I can't find anything for this problem on the internet suggests I'm doing something wrong out of ignorance.

Please help, this is driving me crazy (and back to windows).


P.S. Here is some output/files that might be useful:

------------------ output from ./configure

checking for GTK - version >= 1.2.0... no
*** The gtk-config script installed by GTK could not be found
*** If GTK was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GTK_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to gtk-config.


[jam49@localhost jam49]$ which gtk-config


[jam49@localhost jam49]$ $PATH
bash: /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/home/jam49/bin: No such file
or directory

./configure --help, manually set the gtk0config directory.
