The Joys of Missing Libraries and Camorama

Hello -
I've been trying for days to get Camorama running on my hot and spicy RedHat. Unfortunately, I keep hitting the same error after I run the ./configure through it:

checking for gdk-pixbuf-2.0 gdk-pixbuf-xlib-2.0 libgnomeui-2.0 gtk+-2.0 >= 1.3.13 gconf-2.0 imlibgdk... Package gdk was not
found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gdk.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'gdk', required by 'ImlibGdk', not found

configure: error: Library requirements (gdk-pixbuf-2.0 gdk-pixbuf-xlib-2.0 libgnomeui-2.0 gtk+-2.0 >= 1.3.13 gconf-2.0 imlibgdk) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

Granted, I'm a noob beyond belief; but am I missing something here? I've gone back through my packages and installed what I thought it was asking, but alas! It still gives me that error. Although, it seems it needs to be tweaked in the PKG_CONFIG_PATH - how do I go abouts doing that?

a lot of gnome programs will not work right unless
you install them in the same place as the rest
of your gnome stuff. for redhat its /usr/bin and /usr/lib
use configure --prefix=/usr for all your gnome stuff.
run ldconfig after make install

you need to ensure you've also got the -devel packaes installed for each library needed.

The line that the configure script is dying on is calling pkg-config, which the configure script uses to figure out all the flags that it needs to pass to gcc during make for all the libraries it calls.

The details of the problem can be found in this Bugzilla entry:

The problem appears to be with Red Hat 8.0, and not Camorama. I have contacted the author about this issue. I hope to hear something soon.
