You seem to be right.
Admittedly, I haven't pushed it to see what, if anything, breaks. The
scripts that build GAIM on my system (written by someone else) try to
pull in GNOME 1.4 core libs when I let it be aware that GNOME is
installed on the system. If I say "hey, act like GNOME isn't here" the
script still seems to want GTK+ 1.x.
There is also this FAQ:
Note that it advises that you check the Changelog. It has this entry:
version 0.49 (11/29/2001):
* Can compile against GTK+ 2.0 (version 1.3.10/1.3.11)
So that seems to indicate that it works with GTK+ 2.0 and that the build
scripts aren't smart enough to figure it out. I'll look into it more and
see if I can get those libs off my system without breaking too much.
Note: I just checked and this is the line in the script:
[snip other dependencies]
So they are testing for gtk+-1.2 explicitly, and not trying to make it
work with something newer, like:
I may try rebuilding again tonight by loosening that explicit dependency
and see how it goes.
