Almost there, I think, installed glib-1.2.10-ximian.6.i386 and
glib-devel-1.2.10-ximian.6.i386. Ran "rpm -i gnpan-0.13.4-0.src.rpm".
And pkg-config was asked for. Installed pkgconfig-0.15.0tar.gz, "ran -i
gnpan again" and got this:

checking for bind_textdomain_codeset... yes
checking for pkg-config... /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
checking for glib-2.0 >= 2.0.4
gobject-2.0 >= 2.0.4
gthread-2.0 >= 2.0.4... Package glib-2.0 was not
found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `glib-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'glib-2.0' found

configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.0.4
gobject-2.0 >= 2.0.4
gthread-2.0 >= 2.0.4) not met; consider
adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are
in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.40711 (%build)"

I thought I needed to get a version of glib 2.0+, but after downloading
and trying to install glib2-2.2.1-1, I get this:

"linux:/home/chris/downloads # rpm -Uvh glib2-2.2.1-1.i386.rpm
package glib2-2.2.1-18 (which is newer than glib2-2.2.1-1) is already

I am really at a loss as what to do next.
