Someone's said it before, but try:

gtk-config --version

It should return 1.2.8, but if it doesn't then try:

type gtk-config

Which should return the directory the gtk-config script appears in.  If you compiled 
it yourself
then it usually appears in /usr/local/bin.  If you want to know if you've got multiple 
then use:

find '/' -name 'gtk-config'

The gtk-config script IS NEEDED for gcc to compile the gimp with the gtk library. Just 
'gtk-config' to see the information it returns.  --cflags and --lib return information 
needed by
gcc to use the library.  Hardly the best description, somebody please explain it 

When compiling programs your host option should be (For ./configure):

--host i486-linux-libc5

How do I know that?  Look at the 'irrelevent' bit on your 17.28 Fri 11 Aug post.  I 
recommend you
check again in /etc/, since you re-installed.  Remember to run 'ldconfig' 
after each
library you compile, or it'll still see the old version.

It's maybe time to clarify your sucesses and failures, since we've seen dozens of 
emails on your
problem - and I've lost track of where we are.
