I believe the problem is that pkg-config can't find your gtk+.  The
gnome-config message is just a side affect.  One way to solve this problem
is to set a PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable pointing to the pkgconfig
sugdirectories of each package that pkg-config will be used for.  Below are
some lines from a script that I used for building the gimp under Windows.  I
think you probably need something similar, but with your own solaris paths
instead of my Windows paths.  Perhaps there is some better/alternative way
to solve this problem, but that's how I handled it.
