Unhappy problem with GTK program compilation.

Am having a problem compiling my GTK programs.

It gives an error as follows:
$ gcc base.c -o base `gtk-config --cflags --libs`

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXi
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Also, if i compile it another way,
gcc test.c -o test `gnome-config --cflags --libs --gnomeui`

:/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lSM
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Thank you all,

I do not know what distribution you are using but are you sure you have all of you development libraries installed for gtk, xserver, etc. ?

Example in fedora: gtk2-devel, glib2-devel, xorg-x11-devel
