I'm trying to compile Pidgin 2.1.1 from the source RPM provided by the Pidgin project. I have installed all of the build dependencies and rpmbuild runs the configure script. However, for some reason the configure script fails to recognize that I have install gtk2-devel (this happens even if I try to build Pidgin from just the tarball). When it checks for gtk2-devel it spits out the following error message:
You must have the GTK+ 2.0 development headers installed to compile Pidgin.
If you only want to build Finch then specify --disable-gtkui when running configure.
When I go to build it on another system with all the necessary build dependencies, the source RPM builds successfully and I get an installable package.
Both systems are running Fedora 7 and I'm at a loss where to start troubleshooting this problem with gtk2-devel. I've done a search through the forums for related issues, but I'm not really sure how to word my searches on this particular issue, so I apologize if this problem has already been mentioned in another thread.
