I think that gtk-config is part of the old gtk+-1.x and it doesn't exist in gtk+-2.x. So you have to install also that version of gtk, which is used by many apps (xmms to name one)

Regards

If you're using Suse you should let yast install the packages, so it can resolve any dependancies. As for the missing gtk-config in my Suse 9.2 it's part of the gtk-devel. You can d/l it from here if cannot find it with yast.
