Default Can't install XMMS plugin

Here's the error message I get after ./configure :

*** The xmms-config script installed by XMMS could not be found.
*** If XMMS was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the XMMS_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to xmms-config.

However, XMMS 1.2.10 *is* installed (debian package), anyway xmms-config doesn't seem to exist.

/rant mode on
That's why I hate compiling software. Very often it doesn't work, for reasons I don't understand. Can't developers provide a precompiled version? Ok, this GPL license thing is good, but most often people don't care for the source code. What's wrong with providing precompiled files as well?
