Problems Compiling gtkHTML

Hey All,

I'm running Slackware 8.0 running a 2.4.17 kernel. I'm trying to compile an email client and it tells me it needs to update gtkhtml. I removed the package using pkgtool and downloaded the new version. I tried version 0.16 and whenever I run make on it it gives me the following error message.

/usr/i386-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lpopt
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [gtkhtml-properties-capplet] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/klue/gtkhtml-1.0.2/capplet'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/klue/gtkhtml-1.0.2'
make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2

I also tried a different package that was downloaded right from That gave me the same error message.

Is there a package I'm missing or something. Any suggestions will help. Thank You.

Just like it says in error message "cannot find -lpopt" .It cannot link against popt libraries
You need popt package.

I think this is the right one
