glib installation

So I was trying to install the newest XMMS (thanks to a previous thread) in RH9 and whenever I run ./configure , it tells me that glib isn't installed or isn't in the right place. So I went and downloaded the sources for glib 2.2.2 (configure says it had to be better than 1.2.2), ran ./configure, make, and make install. All seemed to execute fine. I went back to xmms and ran ./configure again, and got the same error.

What steps am I leaving out here?

also, xmms's configure said to try updating the PATH variable. I've tried this before, and think I found the correct file but even with my intermediate programming experience, the file was almost unintelligible. Is there an easier way to edit PATH in RH9?
