Did you get a high enough version of GTK? and hmm gtk  do you have/nee d
all the following?) (GLib, GTK+, Pango, and ATK packages) and perhaps
libpng pkgconfig tiff -> eternal dependencies satisfied.

the GTK stuff might not be in your path.. might have to manually tell
configure where gtk-config gtklibs are?

I'd build from scratch if possible... since you're using files that are
compiled for another distro...

Might be some anti-Lindows code preventing compilation? (Just kidding

The following link concerns me... 


It's like Lindows is cashing in on all the hard work of Arpi and the
rest of the developers...

I don't know much about Lindows... but already i'm disliking it.... and
feel it has little place in the linux comunnity.
