glib configure error

I am running Reh Hat 9. I am a newbie to linux. I am trying to configure a program ./configure I get the following error

checking for glib-config... (cached) /usr/bin/glib-config
./configure: line 2624: min_glib_version: command not found
checking for GLIB - version >= ... ./configure: line 1: /usr/bin/glib-config: No such file or directory
./configure: line 1: /usr/bin/glib-config: No such file or directory
*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB was incorrectly installed
*** or that you have moved GLIB since it was installed. In the latter case, you
*** may want to edit the glib-config script: /usr/bin/glib-config
configure: error: *** GLIB >= 1.2.2 not installed - please install first ***

I cant install glib-1.2.2 because glib-1.2.10-10 is supposedly installed

I cant run glib-config
I cant install glib-1.1.10-10 because it is already installed according to the system
The config.log file has the following error

configure:2592: checking for glib-config
configure:2627: checking for GLIB - version = 1.2.2
configure:2726: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 conftest.c 1>&5
configure:2652:18: glib.h: No such file or directory
I tried editing configure so that minglib_version >=1.2.2 but that didnt help.

Any ideas, where am I going wrong??

Thanx in advance.

"I cant install glib-1.2.2 because glib-1.2.10-10 is supposedly installed"

glib-1.2.10-10 is a later version than glib-1.2.2 so you do not want to downgrade to glib-1.2.2 anyway.

It is likely that you need to install the development version of glib which is probably called glib-devel-1.2.10-10 or perhaps glib-dev-1.2.10-10.
