pkg-config problem, gaim.pc not found

I'm trying to install gaim-decryption and I'm getting this error:

checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for gaim... Package gaim was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gaim.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gaim' found

configure: error: Library requirements (gaim) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix sopkg-config can find them.

I installed Gaim-1.1.1 using AutoPackage and not from source. It seem like somehow the autopackage didn't create gaim.pc inside the /usr/lib/pkgconfig.

If anyone has any solution or suggestion, please help me. I've been fiddling with this all day today.. Thanks in advance..
