glib install

I am trying to install the glib 2.2.2 libraries and I am having difficulty. I do:
make install
Yet I still get complaints that it is not installed. What am I doing wrong?

same problem here.

i just installed glib2.2.0, everything seemed to go just fine, but when installing gaim0.71 it says it can't find any glib 2.0 or higher.

seems as if this is happening to a lot of us - i hope someone can help!

normally glib that comes with an installation will be in /usr,
but most apps you install will go in /usr/local
i would guess that the configure script for the app is finding the older
version of glib. maybe install the glib with configure --prefix=/usr
and the application the same way.
