    I tried to compile gAim last night (Thats the gtk version of aol
instant messenger) and got the following error at the end of the

gcc -DPACKAGE=\"gaim\" -DVERSION=\"0.8.0\" -DSTDC_HEADERS=1
-DHAVE_STRDUP=1 -DHAVE_STRSTR=1  -I. -I.       -c about.c
In file included from /usr/include/gdk/gdktypes.h:25,
                 from /usr/include/gdk/gdk.h:23,
                 from /usr/include/gtk/gtk.h:23,
                 from about.c:31:
/usr/include/glib.h:22: glibconfig.h: No such file or directory
make: *** [about.o] Error 1
[root@(none) gaim-0.8.0]#

What exactly is glib.h or glibconfig.h and where can I get them?


I'll put my compiled binary up on my web page, or upload it to some
sites for public consumption.
