dependency hell over glib stuffs

Hi Folks;

Trying to get gkrellm to watch the system when the kernel is a
2.6.x requires a new gkrellm-2.whatever

That in turn needs gtk+-2.2.x
That needs a new pango, atk and glib, all suitable 2.2.x versions.

I've setup an env var $PKG_CONFIG_PATH thats correct, and I reran
ldconfig everytime I updated by the time honored method of doing
an "rpm -e --nodeps oldpackage" and then installing the new one
from the tarball.

Everything went nominally till I got to gtk+-2.2.4, after having
installed the 2.2.3 versions of pango, atk, and glib.  I've been about
an hour now on search and destroy of older glib-2.2.1 stuff which
is causeing this gtk+-2.2.4 ./configure exit:

checking for pkg-config... (cached) /root/kde3.1.1/bin/pkg-config
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.1.4...
*** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.2.3, but GLIB 
*** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best
*** to remove the old version of GLib. You may also be able to fix the 
*** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by 
*** /etc/ Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
*** required on your system.
*** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable 
*** to point to the correct configuration files
configure: error:
*** GLIB 2.1.4 or better is required. The latest version of
*** GLIB is always available from

I think that (cached) is the killer.  Humm, thats one dir I haven't
checked for an older glib-2.0.pc.  Ok, killed the entries in
/root/kde3.1.1/lib/pkgconfig, didn't help.  And glib-2.2.1 was removed
with the rpm -e --nodeps option.  The gimp runs, but gftp won't, so 
messed something up.  I've reinstalled glib-2.2.3 a dozen times, and
now I can't even rebuild pango, getting the same ./configure error.

Help, says he, plaintively...

Cheers, Gene
