Can't compile GTK+ because it thinks I've got the wrong version of Glib?

I just loaded Yellowdog 6 on my PS3 and I've been having a heck of a hard time trying to get things like swfdec working.

Anyway, I'm trying to compile the latest version (.72) and get an error telling me

"glib-2.0, gobject-2.0 and gthread-2.0 >= 2.16 are required to build swfdec" So I download, compile and install glib 2.16.5.

I just tried installing GTK 2.12 (no real reason, I'm just taking a stab in the dark and hoping the swfdec error goes away by updating to the newest GTK)and I get an error saying

"Requested 'glib-2.0 >= 2.13.5' but version of GLib is 2.12.3"

If I just installed glib 2.16.5, why is being reported as 2.12.3? How would I fix this?

I would guess your original glib (v 2.13.5) is installed in /usr and when you installed glib-2.16.5 you installed it in /usr/local. Add /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig to your PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable and see if that helps.
