GTk+ 2.2.3

I'm trying to install GTK+ 2.2.3 onto my machine, which is running SUSE 8.2 pro. I've installed, atk, pongo, already, and as im running the configure file for gtk, I'm getting the following error.

checking for libpng12... no
checking for png_read_info in -lpng... no
configure: WARNING: *** PNG loader will not be built (PNG library not found) ***
configure: WARNING: *** PNG loader will not be built (PNG header file not found) ***
configure: error:
*** Checks for PNG loader failed. You can build without it by passing
*** --without-libpng to configure but many programs using GTK+ will
*** not work properly. The PNG loader is also needed if you are compiling
*** from CVS.

ANy help with this would be greatly appreciated....I'm goin through all this to install axyftp onto my machine, I dont' have a GUI FTP program loaded.

Search for the libpng development packages and install them (probably on your distro's CD). Then try to run configure again.
