update GNOME

I have GNOME 2.4. Have got tars for 2.6. When I try to install various packages, though it runs (configure, make, make install) actually looks like nothing is getting installed.

e.g. when I attempt to install pkg-config 0.15, after installation the version shown is still 0.12 which is existing version. However when I delete existing files and do the install it works.

What could be going wrong.. Is there any separate option to upgrade?
