I'm trying to build gnome 2.6.0 according to the book.  I'm at the point where I'm building gtk+-2.4.0.
When I issue the ./configure command I'm getting

So it's finding those dependencies ok.  But the config ends with an error:

It's already found pango, so I assume it's not able to find xft?  That doesn't seem right though because I've got 

I can attach the configure log if it will help.
