Why should we expect the GTK+ developers to keep their HEAD revision
compilable at every moment?  That is a completely unreasonable
expectation in the first place.  If I were a GTK+ developer I would be
asking that you NOT do what you're proposing because it creates
pressure on them to keep their HEAD "workable" at all times instead of
doing what they need to do in order to further their own development.

If GTK stable release (1.2) is not acceptable for further development
in the GIMP (which it probably is not), I would strongly urge picking
a relatively stable snapshot of GTK+ current development (possibly,
but not necessarily HEAD today) and use that.  We might have to adjust
later to any changes GTK+ makes to its HEAD after that snapshot, but
at least we won't have to adjust to them willy-nilly as they make
