gnome-control-center configure issue: configure: error: The Network, Bluetooth, Printers and Wacom panels are not optional on Linux systems


I'm trying to configure gnome-control-center from source so I can modify it, but after painstakingly going through installing all the dependencies that the package require, I get an error saying:

configure: error: The Network, Bluetooth, Printers and Wacom panels are not optional on Linux systems.

How do I fix this? I have tried installing the NetworkManager, ModemManager, Blutooth and such development packages and I still get this. I have also searched all over google and all I can find are pages which contain the addition of this check to the configure script. In case it helps I'm on fedoora. Here is the output of the ./autogen.sh (Sorry, I don't know how to format correctly here):

Check the configure file out:

https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-c...c?h=gnome-3-16

as to why you could have received the following warning:

configure: WARNING: *** Network panel will not be built (NetworkManager or ModemManager not found) ***

From the configure file:

Code:
PKG_CHECK_MODULES(NETWORK_MANAGER, NetworkManager >= $NETWORK_MANAGER_REQUIRED_VERSION
                  libnm-glib >= $NETWORK_MANAGER_REQUIRED_VERSION
                  libnm-glib-vpn >= $NETWORK_MANAGER_REQUIRED_VERSION
                  libnm-util >= $NETWORK_MANAGER_REQUIRED_VERSION
                  libnm-gtk >= $NETWORK_MANAGER_APPLET_REQUIRED_VERSION
                  mm-glib >= $MODEM_MANAGER_REQUIRED_VERSION,
                  [have_networkmanager=yes], have_networkmanager=no)
if test "x$have_networkmanager" = xno ; then
        AC_MSG_WARN(*** Network panel will not be built (NetworkManager or ModemManager not found) ***)
else
	AC_DEFINE(BUILD_NETWORK, 1, [Define to 1 to build the Network panel])
fi
So, it is not just a question of installing dependencies, these need also to be of a minimum version number.

Please check that the versions you have installed of all the listed packages meet the minimum requirements.
