pkg-config gtk+-2.0

I am running Mandrake linux 9.1.
I got a package AVIDEMUX (src) .When i try to run the ./configure
script i get the error::::::::
checking for GNU gettext in libc... yes
checking whether to use NLS... yes
checking where the gettext function comes from... libc
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
Package gtk+-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
************ Cannot identify gtk2 version ***************
configure: error: *** pkg-config installed incorrectly or gtk2-dev absent !


i have all GTK packages on the 3 cds installed and i found only a folder
gtk-2.0 in /etc . i saw about gtk+-2.0 in some of the doc files and also i didnt find any 'gtk+-2.0.pc' on my system.
How can i fix it

Use the Mandrake Control Centre to install libgtk-2.0-dev (or whatever it's called). That's not the exact name. It's got some more numbers and possibly mdk in it's name as well but it's definately got libgtk and dev in it's title.
