Installing Galeon 1.2.1

I'm trying to install galeon 1.2.1 on my system, however when i run the configure script it says i don't have mozilla when in fact i do have it installed (version 1.0rc1). As per the installation instructions I have set the MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME variable and have installed mozilla directly from the tar file to get the correct libgtkembedmoz thing, yet it still doesn't recognize that i have mozilla installed.

I've read a lot of horror stories about trying to install galeon, but I really do like the browser and I'd like to have the latest version.

I'm running slackware 8.0, 2.4.18 kernel, kde and gnome installed.

checking for gtk_moz_embed_get_type in -lgtkembedmoz... no
checking for Mozilla... no
configure: error:
*** Mozilla is required
*** A package for is available here:

I'd edit Makefile, it is probably looking for mozilla in the wrong place, find where it tries to locate mozilla and edit the path accordingly to reflect your system settings.

? makefiles

I've got two Makefiles in the directory, and, which one do i edit and what am i looking for ? is very long and i saw a couple things in there that relate to mozilla but nothing that looked like it specified a path, on the other hand was very short and didn't mention anything about mozilla.
