Hi,

You need to install the zlib development package for your distro

What distribution are you using? Ubuntu as suggested by your profile? If thats the case, it would be more suitable to use package manager (apt) to install the packages and all the required dependencies at one go. There is also a front end to apt called Synaptic, if you are using a desktop version of Ubuntu. You can search for the packages you need and then install when you find them

Yup, gtk has a lot of dependencies. If you want to compile it along with its dependencies from sources, set PKG_CONFIG_PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH env. variables to the directory you are installing those dependencies. For example I like to install stuff in the default /usr/local, so I'm using:
Code:
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
Also since dependencies (glib2, atk, pango etc) install their headers under subdirectories in /usr/local/include, I'm also define CPPFLAGS:
Code:
CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/inclde/atk-1.0 -I/usr/local/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/local/include/cairo -I/usr/local/include/pango-1.0 -I/usr/local/include/gio-unix-2.0 -I/usr/local/include/gtk-2.0"
And last but not least the order to compile gtk/dependencies, is: glib2, cairo, cairomm, pango, atk, jasper, gtk

Regards
