dbus-glib-1 version error when installing xfce4.4

i'm trying to install xfce4.4, and it gets almost all the way through and ends up giving me an error:

checking for dbus-glib-1 >= 0.34... found, but 0.23.4
*** The required package dbus-glib-1 was found on your system,
*** but the installed version (0.23.4) is too old.
*** Please upgrade dbus-glib-1 to atleast version 0.34, or adjust
*** the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed
*** the new version of the package in a nonstandard prefix so
*** pkg-config is able to find it.
!! Failed to configure xfdesktop, see the errors above
!! for details on the problem.

i'm not sure where to start. i tried doing a search for package dbus-glib-1 both on my pc and google but found nothing. from another thread i did:
pkg-config glib-2.0 --modversion and it returned 2.6.5.

any help please ?

You can get Xfce RC1 and dbus already compiled for Slackware 11 from Rob's site.

That's what I used and it works perfectly. I'm using Xfce RC1 just had to install dbus and dbus lib from his site.
