   I am only asking that you show us what problems exactly you have when
   building gtk+, so that we can help you to solve them. Saying that
   there are "a lot of problems" doesn't help at all and is what I would
   consider spreading FUD. We are trying to move GIMP development along
   and we will need to use GTK+-2.6 to make this happen. So it should be
   our goal to make sure that all developers update glib and gtk+.
   Telling them that this update will cause problems, but not saying what
   problems these are, doesn't help anyone.

It's been a while since I tried it (when GIMP 2.2 came out), so I
don't remember for certain what happened.  It may have even been
something getting confused about /usr vs. /usr/local (in which case it
wouldn't be a GTK problem at all), but I honestly don't remember.
