Oh, it's not that bad.

Mick, you'll need to modify the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and PKG_CONFIG_PATH
environment variables.  The configure script relies on those
environment variables to figure out what's installed and where things

Say you install glib 2.10 to /opt/local.  The glib libraries will be
in /opt/local/lib.  The pkg-config files for glib will be in
/opt/local/lib/pkgconfig.  So, you'd set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to be
/opt/local/lib and PKG_CONFIG_PATH to be /opt/local/lib/pkgconfig.

(Example using bash shell)
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/local/lib
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/local/lib/pkgconfig

Then when you run the configure script for atk, it should find the
glib that's in /opt/local and not know about the other one that's

This is the reason I suggested jhbuild.  It handles installing almost
all of the dependencies and it will set up the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and
PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variables for you as well (when you're
within the `jhbuild shell` environment).

Yes but what about run-time dependencies on things like the gconf daemon ?
