I finally found the problem: at the configure target see,

checking for GTK - version >= 2.2.0... Package glproto was not found in the
pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `glproto.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'glproto' found

x11/glproto was not installed, I think we could add a dependency on it.
