cant install gXMMS from source...

When i ./configure

After the checks I get this:

checking for xmms-config... no
checking for XMMS - version >= 1.2.6... no
*** The xmms-config script installed by XMMS could not be found.
*** If XMMS was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the XMMS_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to xmms-config.
configure: error: *** XMMS >= 1.2.6 not installed

Although it IS installed....

[root@localhost gxmms-0.1.0]# whereis xmms
xmms: /usr/bin/xmms /usr/lib/xmms /usr/share/xmms /usr/share/man/man1/xmms.1.gz
[root@localhost gxmms-0.1.0]# echo $PATH
[root@localhost gxmms-0.1.0]#

What do I need to do?
