You need to post the tail of your install log for anyone here to be sure, but my first thought is that you don't have the library the install program is looking for. I'm not sure if this is the most elegant way to handle it, but when I get a failed dependency, I pull up Software Manager and search for the library name, then install the basic and development versions of the library. Some libraries have a bunch of packages for things unrelated to what you are doing. I would stick with the basic and development version of each library before trying to install any others.

If you install a new library and then when you try to configure again you get the same failed dependency, try typing "ldconfig" as root.
