[Geany] Building On Mac OS X

I am desperately attempting to build Geany (0.14) on OS X (10.5.4). I
feel that I am close to success, but being relatively new to all of
this (building apps on Unix-like machines, and new-ish to Unix all
together), I am finding myself at a dead end.

I successfully built GTK2, by following the directions found here:

After the build was successful, it didn't really say much, but I found
that build generated the dir "/Users/<username>/gtk/inst" that has the
following dirs:

This looks to me, like a valid GTK2 dir structure. However, when I
attempt to run ./configure on Geany, I get the following:

checking for GTK... configure: error: Package requirements (gtk+-2.0
>= 2.6.0) were not met:
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GTK_CFLAGS
and GTK_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

I tried setting PKG_CONFIG_PATH to the path I mentioned above (and
several other of its subdirs), but I still get the same message.

I'm not sure where to go from here, but again, I feel that I am close
to success.
Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you!
