Question GLib 2.14.1

I have downloaded the glib 2.14.1 package from and installed it with pkgadd. However, glib-config --version shows the old version which is 1.2.10. I tried using crle but it just blew stuff up. I also tried glib-config --prefix=/usr/local but it doesn't seem to stick. I need to upgrade GTK+ so I can in turn upgrade Glade but can't do so until glib shows the correct version. Has anyone came accross this problem before? Do I need to uninstall the old version of glib? If so, how do I go about removing it? I'm a Windows guy so all this console work is killing me. Smilie

I removed glib 1.2.10 by doing pkgrm SUNWGlib. I no longer have glib-config so I can't tell what is going on. I reinstall glib 2.14.1 but still didn't have it. When I try and install GTK+ 2.10.14 I get the below error. I added /lib:/usr/lib:/usr/X11R6/lib to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and did the same in There is no ldconfig on my box. The issue still remains.
