configure: error: GTK not installed

But I do have good version of gtk-config:

$ /usr/pkg/pkgsrc/x11/gnome-libs/work/.buildlink/bin/gtk-config --version

But I see the problem in ./work/gnome-libs-

#line 2524 "configure"

#include <gtk/gtk.h>

I do have /usr/X11R6/include/gtk-1.2/gtk/gtk.h

What does this mean?

Is this something I should send-pr?

Where can I learn about buildlink?

p.s. Are any of the bulk-packages FTP sites available to the public?
