I would get the rpm and install it that way instead of compiling and such

oh
go into terminal/shell type su, then your root password, cd your way to the directory, rpm -Uvh (or -ivh) rpmname

so if i was installing the rpm, libgnomecanvas-2.0-9 and it was in /home/ravin/rpms i would start like this
cd home
cd ravin
cd rpms
rpm -Uvh libgnomecanvas-2.0-9

and it should work
