Well, you give very little information to go on. Please provide the following;

1. What distro and version of Linux are you using?

2. What version of gtk is currently on your system?

3. Did you consider trying a binary package for xdialog, rather than installing from source?

The messages that you are getting tell you that either;

1. gtk is not in your path.

2. gtk 1.2 is not installed on your system.

If you have a newer gtk on the system, than this apparently will not work This is an older library.

See the xdialog faq page, question 12.

Also see this reference.
