glib not found...???? HELP! PLEASE!

Mandrake 10.1, Fresh install. INfact I installed it lastnight befor bed... I went to isntall xchat today.. and unfortunatly it has told me that "cannot find glib"... WTF! Here is the exact error it gives me and a couple lines befor it. Can someone please offer me some assistance in correcting this problem.

checking system type... Linux
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.3... no
*** 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 is incorrectly installed.
configure: error: "Cannot find glib"
[root@localhost xchat-2.4.1]#

I thank you in advance for any help you may be able to provide me!

You need the development package of glib installed e.g. glib2-devel (or something similar).
