problem installing libgnomecancas

Hi all,

I'm in the process of installing Gnome 2.2 from source packages
on a Solaris 2.8 sytem but am facing an issue while trying to
install libgnomecanvas.

The screendump of the error is as follows:

----- dump begins -----

checking for gtk+-2.0 >= 2.0.3 libart-2.0 >= 2.3.8
pango >= 1.0.1 pangoft2 >= 1.0.1... sh: gnome-config: not found
sh: gnome-config: not found
Package pangoft2 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `pangoft2.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'pangoft2' found

configure: error: Library requirements (gtk+-2.0 >= 2.0.3
libart-2.0 >= 2.3.8 pango >= 1.0.1 pangoft2 >= 1.0.1) not
met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment
variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so
pkg-config can find them.

----- dump ends -----

I searched the gnome-list archives and saw John Covici had
reported the same problem while installing Gnome on a debian
platform. Reference:

But I could not locate the source package for building the
library (libfreetype6-dev) on Solaris. Is the package to
create this library same as the freetype-2.1.4.tar.bz2 ? Did
I miss something while configuring the freetype package?
Or should I download some other package for this library?


PS: I took the liberty od ccing the people involved in the
    earlier thread. I hope you guys do not mind!
