./configure makes the makefile, if it is aborted due to some error it does not finish, thus compiling will not work. ./configure usually check for:
1. Correct compilers are installed and configured.
2. Correct dependencies are installed and configured.
1 usually goes without issues, but 2 can cause some issues, even if you have the correct package installed it can't find it or something similar.
Can you tell us what you are trying to compile, and post the output of ./configure?

You should have GTK+ 2.0 installed, at least according to Synaptic (I am using Daryna). Try removed/app/GPicView instead...

Like it say below, it is looking for GTK, but can't find it (most likely it is placed in a non standard place), I am not sure how to fix this. I got a similar issue when I was trying to compile Transmission, but I used a deb instead.
Ohh, I just saw, you do not have GTK+ 2.6.0 (or above), Daryna use 2.12.2, if I managed to read it correctly.. Try compiling an older version, upgrading GTK+ could be painful... Try compiling GPaint instead, I think that is easier. Compiling could be hard, especially since using a package manager is common today.
But I am not especially experienced with compiling, my success % is well below 50.....
