Install problem for newbie

I am new to Linux, and I am trying to install midnight commander. I read that i required glib, so i did "./configure", "make" and "make install" with glib 2.6.2, with success. It was in path file:/home/christoffer/install/glib-2.6.2

Thereafter I'd ./configure in path file:/home/christoffer/install/mc-4.6.0
but it dint work, I get the message at the end:

checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.6... no
*** The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found
*** If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to glib-config.
configure: error: Test for glib failed.
GNU Midnight Commander requires glib 1.2.6 or above.

so I guess I need to put in full path or what? But how is that done?
