PKG_CONFIG_PATH and other questions

Im trying to istall gnomad2, its the software needed to connect my nomad jb3 to my laptop running Mandrake 10.0 power pack and the folowing message comes up Im trying to do this configure using the gnome desktop version and IM almost postive that I do have all of the things needed to run gnomad2 I was wondering if some one could explain this problem to me as Im pretty new to linux in general. Also I looked and found some directions ti urpmi I was wondering how this could pertain to my problem I have been to the urpmi site and done the rutgers and plf urpmi s??? now what should i do when i try to urpmi the needed files its says they are already there. If anyone knows a basic tutorial covering this I would be interested

configure: error: Library requirements ( glib-2.0 gthr ead-2.0 gtk+-2.0 libgnomeui-2.0 l ibnjb id3tag) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

When I used to use Mandrake this error usually meant that I needed to install some development library or other with the package managment tools in the Mandrake Control Centre. The dev libs have the headers and stuff for compiling. For instance if pkg-config is complaining that it can't find glib-2.0 it means you need to look for something that probably (but not always) starts with lib and it probably has dev or devel in the title too. It'll also have some numbers (they can be important - glib-1.2 is not the same as glib-2.0) and no doubt it will have mdk in it too. libglib-2.0-2.4dev-mdk perhaps? You'll know it when you see it.
