As said in task #7334 next step in gtk3-client development is to replace all
uses of gtk features deprecated before 2.24.x with modern ones. That is, so
called gtk3-client would still be gtk2-program but with as gtk3 compatible
codebase as possible.

For that step we need means to build gtk3-client as gtk2-program. This patch
adds such a hack. If one requests both gtk2- and gtk3-clients to be compiled,
they will be configured same way (gtk3-client configuration copied from
gtk2-client configuration). You cannot enable gtk3-client without enabling
I have not mentioned gtk3-client in any documentation (including configures
client lists) on purpose. Mention of gtk3-client would only confuse people who
don't know that it's still in development as gtk2-program.
