enlightenment install prob

i am trying to install enlightenment but when i try to ./configure it i get 2 errors, both telling me it cant find a ESD and PKG-config.

i am running suse 9.2 64bit and have checked in yast and it says both are installed. i just issume that they are installed in someplace other then the default location.

does anybody know where esd is installed on suse 9.2 so that i can pass it onto ./configure with the --with-esd-prefix=PFX option. however in ./configure --help i cannat see an option to tell enlightenment where pkg-config is installed

i will be greatfull for any help on this matter and the exect output i will post below.

checking for esd-config... no
checking for ESD - version >= 0.2.17... no
*** The esd-config script installed by ESD could not be found
*** If ESD was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the ESD_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to esd-config.
WARNING: Enlightenment needs a system with (esound)
0.2.17 or higher to use sound support.
Enlightenment can use EsounD (ESD) to be installed to compile.
Sound will be disabled in this binary. If you ever want sound
You will need to get and install EsounD then recompile Enlightenment.
configure: WARNING: Warning: no EsounD detected.
checking for pkg-config... no
*** The pkg-config script could not be found. Make sure it is
*** in your path, or set the PKG_CONFIG environment variable
*** to the full path to pkg-config.
*** Or see to get pkg-config.
configure: error: Library requirements (imlib2 >= 1.2.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

type this in a console:

which esd

it will tell you where it is installed if you have it.

it is common for rpm distro's to split packages ( not just libraries) especially if they have scripts and things that are not needed to actually run the program, might want to check that out.
