Cheops-ng error 1 on "make"

After playing with Cheops for a while, I wanted to switch to Cheops-ng, so I downloaded it from Sourceforge and tried to install it. For something like 7 hours. Many new installed packages, and many aborts later, was still trying to run ./configure succsessfully.
Then I realized that I could see a list of options running
./configure -help
The good news is that now I wont forget easily that I actually *have* an -help option
The ./config command finally worked without error caused aborts, but I had to disable the last three tests because it keeped aborting on gtktest when it failed to fine some file (GTK *is* installed, but not in the "right" directory), and the same thing happened with glibtest after disabling gtktest, and again with imlibtest, with both gtktest and glibtest disabled; so I typed
./configure --disable-gtktest --disable-glibtest --disable-imlibtest
Next on the installation instructions provided by the Readme file was
make install
But when I typed "make" in the terminal window I saw a bunch of errors pass thru the window, so when it was done I rolled it back and had a look.
(I'm quoting one of each type skipping "quasi-redundant" messages where all that change is a small detail like a number or something like that.
types.c:860: warning: pointer targets in passing argument 2 of ‘adns__vbuf_appendq’ differ in signedness

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgnomeui
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [cheops-agent] Error 1
The third line from the bottom looks like I need to install gnomeui, which I couldnt fine in Synaptic and apt-get did not find either, but maybe my command line was wrong: I typed only
apt-get install gnomeui
Without specifying where it should look for the file (by the way, what was the line, again? I *know* it's not "rtfm" but I could look at some documentation after all)

What do those errors mean?
What did I do wrong?
What did I do right? (if any)

and most important:

What should I do next?
