Gaim .66 glib 2.0 error


I've been trying to install gaim .66 in RH9 with no luck. I downloaded the RPM which ran without errors, but when i run rpm -q gaim, I get nothing. Anyways, I downloaded gaim-0.66.tar.gz and heres all that I did (all as root):
# tar -zxvf gaim-0.66.tar.gz
gaim-0.66] # ./configure

error I get: GLib 2.0 is required to build gaim...

ok, I go get Glib-2.2.2.tar.gz:
# tar -zxvf (file)
# ./configure
# make
# make install

Glib appears to install all happily with no errors... but when I repeat all gaim steps above I get the same error. I tried some earlier versions of Glib as well with no success. One other thing I did before all this was install gtkspell (lack thereof prevented me from installing gaim on past RH9 installs) and that also appeared to go well. I don't think gtkspell is my problem right now tho. Any insight would be much appreciated.

why are you insatlling glib from source when you are on an RPM based distro? you should have just installed the glib-devel rpm rather than potentially messing up your system by installing conflicting versions of software.

because the highest rpm i could find was glib-devel-1.3.15-1, which doesn't help me out at all since gaim is looking for >= 2.0. If anyone else could help me find a solution to this it would be much appreciated .

is there an official rpm release of glib 2.0 or greater? i searched rpmfind.net again with no luck. Thinking more about acid's post would I have to uninstall my earlier vs of glib in order to install the most recent?
