Pango and ATK not linking to correct Glib
I am trying to compile GTK+ 2.4 so that I can compile the Gimp. Deb Packages are great but don't seem to come with gimptool so I can't install plugins. I am thinking that if I compile it from the source I will have the gimptool cause I can see gimptool.c and gimptool.h in the source.

Anyway, I managed to install Glib. It took me a while. I accidently installed Glib to /usr/local instead of /usr. I don't want to have two versions of Glib on my machine so I removed the one in /usr/local/. I reinstalled the latest version of Glib to /usr and manually removed the glib folders in /usr/local/. Now I have a problem though, when I try to compile ATK and Pango, it says it cannot find Glib above 2.2.0. When I run "$ pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0" it returns 2.4.0. I removed the glib-2.0.pc in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig and made sure that the right one was in /usr/lib/pkgconfig. I ran "$ ldconfig" as root and still can't link to the right Glib. The config.log says that it cannot find glib.h. I am thinking that maybe it is still trying to access glib.h at /usr/local and not /usr. I could install GLIB to /usr/local but then I would have two versions of Glib to keep up.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

why dont you just install the binary package of Gimp.?

Because the Debian package does not come with the gimptool executable. I want to use the perl plugins.
