Thanks again, James.
I did this, but it got in a big knot. Probably something to do with the fact
that I had already attempted to install GTK v1.2.8....
So I rebuilt the developers' version of Mandrake Linux (yet again!!). One of
the first things that I did after that was to remove GTK using the command
'rpm -ev --nodeps gtk+'. I did likewise with glib. This was to, in theory at
least, remove the old mdk version as you suggested.
Then I installed the 1.8 versions of GTK and glib (e.g. for GTK, I said
'rpm - ivh gtk+-1.2.8-1.i386.rpm').
I then went thru' the hoops of untarring and then attempting to configure as
before, but this error message still came up.
(I was in a sub-directory of /root when I did all of this)
Do you know what I can do from here ? (....please don't say 'give up' :)).
P.S. what is this 'gtk_config' file for anyway ?
