compiling gaim



I want to compile gaim (chatting msn/icq/aim all in one) for my mac (they don't have a version made for mac but its open source). when i try to compile and install (./configure) it tells me i need glib with the website then when i try to compile that it tells me that i neec to install pkgconfig. now when i ./configure pkgconfig it tells me i do not have permision to do so. so i figure i need to login as root. i login as root but then i can't get to the file.

1. is there anyone who has compiled/installed gaim on their mac?
2. where should i put the files so that i can see them when i'm loged in as root in the terminal? so that i can compile without getting permision denied or somthing rather of that sort?
