Installing GTK2

I have compiled, made, installed GTK+2.x.x Now if I say gtk-config --version it say 1.2.x still. The funy thing that this 1.2.x is needed by some apps based on rpm -ev gtk (around 50 of them or more).
I wanted to make Ximian to be anti-aliased. It is still ugly and I do not know how to come over the problem.

I did the following:
1) tar -zxvf GTK+...
2) ./configure --prefix=/opt/gtk
3) make, make install
4) ldconfig

Start ximian.
Aint work... what should I do?

dist: SuSE8.2

Try to install GTK2 from an RPM and see if that works better with you system. The reason may be because Ximiam is looking for gtk2 in other place.
P.S. You may want ot keep gtk 1.2, many apps require this version of gtk because gtk2 is not compatible with apps from gtk1.
