installing gtk+

Hello, when i go to install gtk+ i get this error when i type ./configure

checking for freetype-config... /usr/local/bin/freetype-config
checking For sufficiently new FreeType (at least 2.0.1)... no
configure: error: pangoxft Pango backend found but did not find freetype libraries

I did install atk-1.2.4, freetype-2.1.9, glib-2.2.3, pango-1.2.5, pkgconfig-0.15.0

what can i do?

PKG_CONFIG_PATH needs to include /usr/X11R6/lib/pkgconfig
this might only be only necessary to compile Pango not GTK+ ??? not sure
it looks as if it didn't find /usr/local/bin/freetype-config
which freetype-config
if it's in /usr/bin try ./configure --prefix=/usr for gtk ???
perhaps it only looks at it's own prefix.
