            I didn't post the original request, but this fixed it for me. Thanks for the info.

            I use Slackware 9.0.0-beta kernel 2.4.19. I installed libgphoto2-2.1.1.tar.gz and then tried to install gphoto2-2.1.1.tar.gz and gtkam-0.1.10.tar.gz both of which had the following problem with ./configure using bash.

            [ERROR MESSAGE]checking for libgphoto2 >= 2.1.1... Package libgphoto2 was not found in the pkg-config search path. Perhaps you should add the directory containing 'libgphoto2.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable No package 'libgphoto2' found

            INSTALLING gphoto2-2.1.1.tar.gz & gtkam-0.1.10.tar.gz
            $./configure
            /* I received the error message above*/

            To fix this you need to setup an environment variable for PKG_CONFIG_PATH so that it is set to the directory where the file libgphoto2.pc is located. There may be multiple ways to do this with all the different distro's out there, some of which were setting environment variables in ~./bashrc or bash_conf. So here is what I did in bash with Slackware 9.0.0-beta on an A7A266/1.4ghz system.

            $echo $PKG_CONFIG_PATH
            /* if you had an error this will most likely output a blank line, or possibly something that you recently set it to */

            $cd /

            $find -R | grep libgphoto2.pc
            /* this outputs to your screen the directory info of all the libgphoto2.pc files in all subdirectories from / The directory you come up with may be different than what I came up with as shown below */

            $export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/
            /* this sets the environment variable for PKG_CONFIG_PATH */

            $echo $PKG_CONFIG_PATH
            /* the screen output of this should be what is after the = in the export command above, and now that you have the environment varialbe set you should be able to successfully install gphoto2-2.1.1.tar.gz and gtkam-0.1.10.tar.gz*/

            $cd gphoto2-2.1.1
            $./configure
            /* this should now configure without the error message */

            $cd gtkam-0.1.10
            $./configure
            /* this should now configure without the error message */

            As a note to this I did setup an environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH to the file its asking for......no dice.

            Installation probs
            Anyone having getting this thing installed??
            I just bought a Canon S230 that I would LOVE to have working
            in Linux.
            I have already installed libgphoto2.
            Running ./configure for gphoto2 gives me
            ------------
            checking for libgphoto2 >= 2.1.1... Package libgphoto2 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
            Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgphoto2.pc'
            to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
            No package 'libgphoto2' found

            configure: error: Library requirements (libgphoto2 >= 2.1.1) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
            ------------
            Any ideas? I've been looking for info, but I've found little.
