Getting gtk-2.0.pc on Mandrake 9.2

I am trying to install Abi Word from tar but I get the following error messsage when I run ./configure:

checking for
gtk -2.0 >= 2.0
libglade-2.0 >= 2.0.0
... Package gtk -2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk -2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtk -2.0' found
configure: error:

I have rpm installed everything that a search for this package has suggested but it is still not on my machine (at least I can't find it with a find files search).

Can anyone help me get gtk -2.0.pc on my Mandrake 9.2 machine?

Many thanks.

did you update the slocate database? Update this with command "updatedb" as root. Then search for it again. If that doesn't find anything, install gtk+-2.0 from source. Then put


in the ".bashrc" file in your home directory. Then compile Abi Word.
