    You'll just have to check what it is configure actually tests for and
    figure out from that why your system doesn't pass.

    here's something i noticed

    Package gtkglextmm-1.2 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
    Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtkglextmm-1.2.pc'
    to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
    No package 'gtkglextmm-1.2' found

    the configure script is looking for gtkglextmm-1.2.pc , a file that
    does not exist, what i do have is gtkglext-1.0.pc , im wondering why
    i have the 1.0. version while i built the 1.2. source , plus the 'mm'
    in the name is missing from the name of my .pc files

  4. The mm in the name is for a C++ binding for the library. Make sure you
    install both gtkglext and gtkglextmm packages.
