GtkSpell and Gaim don't like me >_>


Okay, I installed GtkSpell awhile ago, and never really thought too much about why it didn't work with Gaim. Well, for some reason, I'd like to get the silly thing working. I definitely have it installed

Code:
root@onizuka:BT_Temps$ lspkg | grep -i gtkspell
gtkspell-2.0.6-2.i386
But Gaim, isn't recognizing it.

Code:
checking for gtkspell-2.0 >= 2.0.2... Package gtkspell-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtkspell-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtkspell-2.0' found


Build with Plugin support..... : yes
Build with Perl support....... : yes
Build with Tcl support........ : yes
Build with Tk support......... : yes
Build with Audio support...... : yes
Build with NAS support........ : no
Build with GtkSpell support... : no
I know I built GtkSpell from source, and installed with Checkinstall (meaning it's installed in the default location), anyway I can make Gaim recognize it?

Well, where is gtkspell-2.0.pc really located?

that wasn't what he asked now was it? where IS the .pc file? you might want to copy it to another location, specify the location directly to ./configure, or alter your pkgconfig setup.

Well, this takes quite a long time to do but:
find / > fs.dir
grep gtkspell-2.0.pc fs.dir

What does it say?

Sorry, I didn't even notice the .pc part, kinda tired :\

There doesn't seem to be a .pc file, but, I did install GtkSpell, isn't that where the .pc file comes from?
