library path variable

hello ppl,

I have been trying to compile Gaim from source for my Redhat 9 based system.
I untar the package to a non standard location /home/vrdhananjay/programme ("where is the stardard location anyway?")
Then while configuring the script could not find the path to pkg-config...this i rectified using export for PATH

Theres a new problem while configureing it now...It cannot find GLib 2.0 while configuring...I installed Glib 2.0 from source just sometime there LIB_PATH variable or something that I have to set befoe trying to install?

Thanks in advance

There's the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable which should be set to point to any directories not usually checked by the linker.
