GTK+ installation - error message

Trying to install GTK+-2.6.4

After running./configure command I get the following error message

configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.6.0 atk >= 1.0.1 pan
go >= 1.8.0> not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

Can anyone tell me what I need to do now.

You seem to need newer versions of the mentioned libs to build the gtk+ 2.6.4 library. If you look on your system you will see, that Mandrake 9.0 probably ships with older versions.
You would have build/install them too, to get gtk2 working. Can't you find a repository for this, does someone still maintain Mandrake 9.0?
If you have the mentioned libs (in the error output) on your system write here again, I'm sure you will get other responses then.

you have to install the prerequisites first ( read the README). also, you probably don't want to do ./configure, make, make install - it's fine if you do, but you will have to set up all of your environmental paths manually and Mandrake ships with them in /usr so it's best to put them back there ( remove the old libs first).
