Thank you Alexis
I've tried to install Orage with your suggest but I found another 
problem probably indipendet from the "base directory" . The pkg-config 
can't find the libxfce4mcs-client-1.0 library and infact there'isn't 
such library on my system.
I search for it in the web but I found almost nothing ( 3 result with 
google) I think that the library concearns GTK but I don't where find it.

It seams quite strange

here the output of the ./configue comand

I've tried to install the libxfcegui4-4-4 from the Mandriva Control 
Center and  it'is seamed all gone fine, but pkg-conf still dont find 
that library.

I think that the istallation directory of the lib is the standard one

bye  and thanks
