Angry Gtk+

Im trying to install GTK+ so I can run Airsnort on fedora core 3.
I downloaded it and extracted it and when i ran ./configure in the terminal it starts going and then stops at:
configure: error: Xft version 2 is required for x11 target
I installed Xft but it still gives me that error.
What do I do?

I don't know what Xft is, but if those are some libraries, then try to install Gtk+ after doing ldconfig.

What distribution are you running? Unless you are using a built-from-scratch system there should be packages for gtk+. Install them, and install the corresponding development packages (usually the same package name but ending with -dev or -devel). These provide the header files necessary to compile software that use these libraries.

Not Yet

I got Gtk+ installed I think.
It says It's there.
But when I try to configure airsnort I get this;

checking for gtk+-2.0 >= 2.0.0... Package gtk+-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found

configure: error: Library requirements (gtk+-2.0 >= 2.0.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
[root@localhost airsnort-0.2.6]#

How do I add the directory to the variable?
Im running Fedora Core 3.
