Did you also check that there were no files named for example
libgdk-x11-2.0.so* in /usr/local/lib  or anywhere else on the system
except for /opt/gnome/lib?
(that file is a part of GTK+)

To me that sounds like it's picking up a 2.2 version of libgdk which
didn't have that symbol. You could try running:

ldd /path/to/gimp-2.0

to see which shared libraries it depends on. If it seems to pick up
libgdk or libgtk from any other directory than /opt/gnome/lib (if that's
where you installed GTK+), then you have a problem. You could also check
the result of  ldd /opt/gnome/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0

You can run

objdump -T  /opt/gnome/lib/libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0 | grep lock

to make sure that the gdk_threads_lock symbol indeed exists in the
libgdk you built. It should be listed in the output from grep.

Hope this helps
