You either don't have gtk2-devel installed or the efax config check is
doing something silly or incorrect.

Look in config.log or config.status for more details on the failure.
You should be able to verify for yourself whether pkgconfig can find
an appropriate gtk package.  I get this:

$ rpm -q gtk2-devel

$ pkg-config --modversion gtk+-2.0

Since you're using x86_64, you may want to tell rpm to show you the
architecture when you query packages.  You can do that by adding this
to /etc/rpm/macros:

%_query_all_fmt %%{name}-%%{version}-%%{release}.%%{arch}
