error while installing tarbell file

I'm a newbie to linux "about a month' not computing but this seems very different to me.

while trying to install wbar an "icon doc" in linux lite xfce. I was able to extract the file and navigate to the folder and when i entered ./configure it started listing information and at the end I got this error msg.

checking for modules... no
configure: error: Package requirements (imlib2 x11) were not met:

No package 'imlib2' 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 modules_CFLAGS
and modules_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

It means the header files for that library cannot be found, which are required to compile it.
Try searching in your package manager for "imlib2".

Depending on which distribution you are using, you may also need to install "imlib2-dev" or similar.

For example, on ubuntu/debian based distributions,
xorg-dev provides header files for x11
libimlib2-dev provides header files for imlib2
