	* INSTALL: Minor fixes and improvements.  Suggest using a
	different prefix and setting PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR if old versions of

	packages.

Fix: Remove the old libraries and include files. If you are afraid
that removing the old libraries may break other packages supplied by
your distributor, you can try installing GLib, GTK+ and other
libraries in a different prefix after setting the environment
variable PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR to point to lib/pkgconfig/ in that new
prefix so that it does not try to read the *.pc files from the
default directory (/usr/lib/pkgconfig). However, removing the old
packages is often the easier solution.
A detailed log of the ./configure output is written to the file
config.log. This may help diagnose problems.
