If this happens under Dia compilation (not in the configure script), then
your Gtk installation is probably messed up.  Can you give more details?

But right now, I would like to understand better the differences 
between some "words" appearing in dia.spec and INSTALL files

This lists the packages necessary to run the compiled code.  Things like
libgtk2 etc.


This lists the packages necessary to compile the code.  On top of the
development versions of the above, it also includes some compilation tools
like automake, autoconf and libtool.

     Compiling from CVS

This refers to downloading the source from CVS and compile it outside of
the package management system.  This will give you the very newest code,
but you won't get the advantages of a packaging system taking care of some
details for you.
