Help!!! I can't resolve a gtk+ 2.4.7 configure error

Things were going fine until the part of compiling gtk+ 2.4.7. When running the configure script I ended up getting the following:

checking for freetype

configure: error: Pango 1.2.0 and Xft backend is required for x11 target

I have Mandrake Linux 8.1, glib 2.4.7, pango 1.4.0 and atk 1.0.1

If I install pango 1.2.0, then I will get the error message stating that pango 1.4.0 is required.

You should check to see if you can point to where pango is installed.. for instance:

./configure --configure-with /usr/local/pango-1.4.0/

Something to that effect. Chances are that the configure can't find your pango install?????

That's my guess
