    Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgnome-2.0.pc'
    to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable

    Help ? Thanks.

    It appears by looking at the last few lines of your post that you are missing, (or as it also suggests, it is in a different location than where it is looking),
    libgnome-2.0. Try locate libgnome-2.0, failing that, you need that dependancy.
