Error when compiling gtksourceview-1.6.0

I am attempting to install gtksourceview-1.6.0 on an FC9 machine.  I am instructed that I must install this particular version, on top of these software packages:
gtk+2.8.20
atk 1.10.3
pango 1.10.4
cairo 1.4.10
glib 2.10.3


So far so good.  Installed all the packages. However, when I attempt to make gtksourceview I receive the following error:

gtksourceregex.c:43: error: field 'reg' has incomplete type
gtksourceregex.c: In function 'gtk_source_regex_compile':
gtksourceregex.c:56: error: 'RE_SYNTAX_POSIX_MINIMAL_EXTENDED' undeclared (first use in this function)


Additional information:  glib and the other packages are installed in /usr/local/lib, but the new include files it appears to be looking for are in /usr/include.

PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig
 LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:/usr/lib


Is there an easy way to get this make back on track?  If not, is there another version that will still work with the prerequisite packages? I'm certain gtksourceview 2.4 and later will work, but that will require installing later versions of the prerequisite software as well.  That isn't really acceptable at this time.

Unfortunately, that's not going to work in this case. Yum list available tells me that I can download gtksourceview1.8 -- no other packages are available.  And for compatibility reasons with another site we must use 1.6.0.  

The question is not how to get gtksourceview running -- it has always been known we can get a 2.* or later version running, but the price we pay is inconsistency with another site -- inconsistencies which have cost us a great deal.  So if at all possible I would like to solve this make problem and build gtksourceview1.6.0 on this system.

Well gentles, it's now been nearly a week, and I can see no other option but to bite the bullet and move to a later version of the packages. The other team must either upgrade as well, or accept a divergent package set.

Respectfully,
