Question Problem trying to install glib 2.6.1

I'm trying to install gtk+ 2.6.1 and it ask me for glib, atk and pango. I'd installed glib 2.6.1 but when i install pango it gives me this error:

checking for GLIB - version >= 2.5.7... no
*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB is incorrectly installed.
configure: error:
*** Glib 2.5.7 or better is required. The latest version of
*** Glib is always available from

I'd installed glib by this way:
$ configure --prefix=/usr
$ make
# make install

I'm using SUSE 9.0

I think glib is usually in /usr/lib, so you should link (ln -s) the glib libraries to /usr/lib/. This is the place where libraries should be according to the FHS (file hierarchy standard), so I think you better shouldn't use the --prefix option, but that's just my opinion.

This should do I hope.
