libgnome-devel bug!!

recently I started to learn programming GNOME/GTK+

GTK+ libraries in my SuSe Linux 9.3 are ok. But when I tried programming
with gnome library (libgnome-devel and libgnomeui-devel ), although I have
installed development packages and header files correctly (pkg-config libgnome-2.0 shows correct pathes) but I receive an error saying that file
"popt.h" that is referred from another header file ( I forgot it's name. sorry)
is missing. and because of that missing header file, compiler sees a syntax error
that is caused by string "poptContext" ( which is probably a macro or typedef in popt.h).

I haven't found anything on net about this yet. I also downloaded both the above packages and they too have the same problem.

any help is much appreciated.

thank you

Maybe you have libpopt on your system, but not popt.h? If so, you
should probably configure --with-included-popt.
