Not necessarily true, unfortunately. When you are building GTK from source,
and it declares a required dependency, it needs the "development" version of
those packages. Some distros don't package enough headers with the "basic"

Generally that's not where the PKG_CONFIG_PATH should point. If you can't find
the necessary .pc files anywhere then it suggests you haven't got
the "development" packages installed (the basic package may be missing it
since binaries pre-compiled against the libs don't need the .pc file)
That said, you haven't told us which distro you're using (apart from it's
RPM-based) so I'm guessing somewhat.
