I am using Debian Kali Linux 2.0 64 bit and am trying to install xmms player. I executed ./configure and I got the configure error (please see heading). After searching on the net I saw that libgtk1.2 is no longer supported, You need to install libgtk2.0 . So, I issued the following command

apt-get install libgtk2.0 --fix-missing

Now I executed I went to the xmms directory and executed ./configure, but I still get the following message

 checking for pthread.h... yes
    checking for glib-config... no
    checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.2... no
    *** The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found
    *** If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
    *** your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the
    *** full path to glib-config.
apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev

But it's easier to install xmms from an archive package.
