Well, now I tried to compile and install gtk-2.6 on Mandrake 10.1. I used the 
Cooker Source RPMs, and compiled them each in turn. gtk+-2.6.0 required the 
new version of pango, which in turn required the new version of automake 1.8 
to be compiled. The compilation of the automake 1.8 RPM took a long time due 
to the fact that all the tests was run. There's a macro in the beginning of 
the RPM SPEC that instructs the tests not to run, so I suggest people either 
set it to false or install the automake-1.8 compiled RPM.

That was my main problem. After that everything mostly went well. When I 
installed the gtk RPMs, I got a file conflict with one of the files of 
gtk-engines2, so I had to use "rpm --replacefiles". Compiling the new 
gtk-engines2 RPM worked, but trying to install it ended up in other packages 
that required it as a dependency, so I did not go into there.
