    glib2 not found ?

    hi . this is the first post here so if I'm doing something wrong pls tell me.
    I want to install ARIA - download manager, and when I'm compiling it gives me this error :
    checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.6... no
    *** The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found
    *** If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
    *** your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the
    *** full path to glib-config.
    configure: error: *** GLIB >= 1.2.6 not installed - please install first ***

    I have downloaded glib, configure, make, make install. everything went ok. no error messages.
    What I'm doing wrong ? I have mandrake linux 10.1, kde 3.2
