help installing GTK-PERL

im trying to follow the install for gtk-perl but i keep getting errors.

it asks me to type in "perl Makefile.PL" and heres what happens when i do that

linux:~/Desktop/Gtk-Perl-0.7008 # perl Makefile.PL
Can't exec "gtk-config": No such file or directory at Makefile.PL line 141.
Package 'gtk' needed but it was not detected on your system.
You may want to force it using --with-gtk-force if you know better than me.
isn't gtk what I'm trying to install? why would it be detected?

Nope, it's a Perl-interface to the GTK library.
And naturally an interface needs the real thing
in the first place...
