Peacock Install Error

I want to put together a simple webpage, and I found a program called Peacock. I know it's fairly new but I'm interested in it. I tried to install it, but at the end of my ../configure I got this error:

/configure: line 4231: ./po/ No such file or directory
checking what warning flags to pass to the C compiler... -Wall -Wunused -Wmissing-prototypes -Wmissing-declarations
checking what language compliance flags to pass to the C compiler...
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for libgnomeui-2.0 >= 2.2.0 libbonoboui-2.0 >= 2.2.0 libglade-2.0 >= 2.0.1 gtksourceview-1.0 >= 0.5.0... Package libgnomeui-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgnomeui-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libgnomeui-2.0' found

configure: error: Library requirements (libgnomeui-2.0 >= 2.2.0 libbonoboui-2.0
>= 2.2.0 libglade-2.0 >= 2.0.1 gtksourceview-1.0 >= 0.5.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

What am I supposed to do with this information? Thanks for helping the mindless n00b

I have found several libgnomeui's, but they're 3.2, not 2.0. Should I still install your RPM? Or do I need to change PKG_CONFIG_PATH to tell it where to look? (If so, then, how?) Thanks for the aid, I want to make a website entirely free from windows, and an open source progam would be great!

yes, it sounds like you need to change your PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable.

Here's how:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

Now, that variable will only last for that "session", so closing the terminal or switching users will reset it.

Also, you may need the change the /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig to the proper directory. Look for the *.pc files that you need, and the dir. will always end in /pkgconfig.
