GDesklets needs libgtop-2.0.pc on PKG_CONFIG_PATH

I'm trying to install GDesklets and when ./configure an error comes out when cheking for the dependency Can anyone tell me how to fix this? This is the error:

checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for gnome-python-2.0 >= 1.99.17 pygtk-2.0 >= 1.99.17 gdk-2.0 gtk+-2.0 libgtop-2.0 >= 2.0.0... Package libgtop-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgtop-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libgtop-2.0' found

configure: error: Library requirements (gnome-python-2.0 >= 1.99.17 pygtk-2.0 >= 1.99.17 gdk-2.0 gtk+-2.0 libgtop-2.0 >= 2.0.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

locate libgtop | grep pkgconfig
If you get something back from this command, add that path to $PKG_CONFIG_PATH

For example, if it comes back with /opt/gnome/lib/pkgconfig/libgtop-2.0.pc, you can put
in ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile or ~/.profile...or maybe one of a few other files.
