gnome-config compilation problems

When attempting to compile Gabber on my Red Hat Linux 8.0 system, I received the following errors when running ./configure:

checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
/home/hutch/gabber-0.8.7/missing: Unknown `--run' option
Try `/home/hutch/gabber-0.8.7/missing --help' for more information
configure: WARNING: `missing' script is too old or missing
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl
checking for gnome-config... no
checking for file in /usr/local/lib... not found
configure: error: Could not find the file that is generated by gnome-libs install

Solution: install the gnome-libs-devel RPM. You may want to use apt-get or up2date to install this package as it has several dependencies.

apt-get install gnome-libs-devel
