By reading the manual. In the R-admin manual it says

`Please check you have all the requirements. You need at least the following packages or later installed:





Remember that some package management systems (such as @acronym{RPM} and deb) make a distinction between the user version of a package and the developer version. The latter usually has the same name but with the extension @samp{-devel} or @samp{-dev}. If you use a pre-packaged version of @acronym{GNOME} then you must have the developer versions of the above packages in order to compile the R-GNOME console.'

My FC3 box has

gannet% rpm -qa | grep ^libglade

and note that libglade2[-devel] is NOT a later version of libglade (in the same way that gtk2 is different from gtk).

AFAICS it is likely that /usr/bin/libglade-config is provided by libglade-devel-0.17-15.
