Angry PROMLEMS with pkgconfig

i am a newb to linux and i've been trying to update my pkgconfig without much success. i'm running redhat 9 and after i type ./configure i try to type make and these are the errors i get:

[root@localhost pkgconfig-0.15.0]# make

i conclude this is also causing the pkg config path error i get because i'm trying to upgrade glib and gtk. help would greatly be appreciated.

Thumbs up

I fixed this by editing gmain.c and changing <sys/poll.h> to <poll.h> and removing the #IFDEF's around it. I then went on to get nessus running sucessfully after this. This may fix your problem as well.
