Where is glib-config and How could I configure it?

when I use ./configure in the xmms-1.2.10/ dirrectory, it has the following error:

checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.2... no
*** The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found
*** If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to glib-config.
configure: error: *** GLIB >= 1.2.2 not installed - please install first ***

and then I downoad and install glib2.3.1
but when I ./configure xmms, the above error occurs again.
and I try to find glib-config in /usr/bin, /usr/lib, /usr/share, but I can't find.

How could I configure the glib_config or glib-config file so as xmms could find it?

This depends on what distribution you run, but do you have the glibc development packages installed? glib-config is usually found at /usr/bin/glib-config (which should be easily found by the configure script if it was installed).

Glib-2 is a different development series to glib-1. Xmms is asking you for glib-1.2 . As hw-tph says, you need to install the glib-dev package if you're using an .rpm based distro.
