Anuj, in cast it's not clear, here is some more explanation.

configure usually checks (usually via pkg-config) for an API name, which
often includes a number (such as gtk-2.0, tinymail-1.0, libxml-2.0) but
that's not necessarily a tarball version (such as tinymail 0.0.9 or gtk+
2.10.2.). The API name doesn't change for every tarball release, because
that would break your configure script each time. This is most confusing
when using unstable pre-1.0 versions.

This becomes clearer when you use pkg-config's --modversion command to
get that tarball version. For instance:

murrayc murrayc-desktop:~$ pkg-config libtinymail-1.0 --modversion
murrayc murrayc-desktop:~$ pkg-config gtk+-2.0 --modversion
