gDesklets ./Configure

I've been trying to get gDesklets installed for so long.... (if only someone would make an RPM and make everything easier)

I ran the ./configure script, and everything went through until it fell over with an error saying PKG_CONFIG couldn't be found.... So i installed PKG_CONFIG and the ./configure script gets past that now... Only this time, it falls over itself when trying to find python-2.0.pc or something. I tried to install python-2 from the RPM on the Fedora cd's but it says that the package is already installed.... whats going on? Can somone help me please?

Full error:

Checking for gnome-python-2.0 >= 1.99.17 pygkt-2.0 >= 1.99.17... Package gnome-python-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing 'gnome-python-2.0.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable.
No package 'gnome-python-2.0' found.

Configure: error: Library requirements (gnome-python-2.0 >= 1.99.17 pygtk-2.0 >= 1.99.17) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
