Configure can't find libgtkhtml

Hi there. New to logjam and fairly new to my current distro, altho' not new to Linux as such, so bear with me...

I'm running VectorLinux 5.8 SoHo, which is based on Slackware. I downloaded the current logjam source (logjam-4.5.3.tar.bz2), configured and installed -- all fine, except the configure script couldn't find libgtkhtml3. I've since realised that in order to be able to display the offline copy I really don't want to do without this functionality -- but I simply can't get it to work.

I have tried downgrading gtkhtml-3.14.3 to 3.0.8 (on the basis that 3.0.8 specifically lists libgtkhtml3); separately installing libgtkhtml-3.0.10 from somewhere; and variations on these.

Currently, I have libgtkhtml-3.0.so in (I believe -- I'm not at home right now) /opt/gnome2/lib/, which seems an odd place to put it, so I have tried soft-linking this to targets in /usr/lib and /usr/bin. I have also tried doing ./configure --with-libgtkhtml30, and I have tried --libdir="/opt/gnome2/lib" (or whatever the syntax is -- like I say, I'm not at home right now, but I copied and pasted the options from the --help itself, so there wasn't some silly mistake there).

All to no avail. I'm stumped. Everything else works -- apart from the XMMS support, which I can't be bothered with -- but I want to get this fixed. Suggestions, anyone?

TIA :)

EDIT: All fixed and happy now, mostly thanks to spot! The fix needed was basically just his patch, plus me learning a little bit about how to use it :)
