Attempt to compile nzbget-0.7.0 failed in ./configure with message

configure: error: "libsigc++-2.0 header files not found"

So I got the dependencies, including libsigc++-2.2.9, and installed
them, apparently all good.
But compiling nzbget again failed at same place.  To check, I did

root at a:/usr/pkgs# ls
HandBrake-0.9.5-i686-1_SBo.tgz  libpar2-0.2-i486-1_SBo.tgz
root at a:/usr/pkgs# installpkg  libsigc++-2.2.9-i486-1_SBo.tgz

Package libsigc++-2.2.9-i486-1_SBo.tgz installed.

root at a:/usr/pkgs# updatedb
root at a:/usr/pkgs# locate libsigc++-2*
root at a:/usr/pkgs# echo $PATH
root at a:/usr/pkgs#

I'm not familiar with this process, but it seems to me there should
now be at least 2 occurrences of the name libsigc++-2* on my system,
one of them in the PATH?
