Of course! Such is life...

I have had this problem with qt before (ie: developers wanting the
latest version for the app to build - I had to build newer versions of
qt to support newer apps) but I don't think I had hit it with gtk2.
I'm pretty sure there must be some very convenient api feature in the
new version of gtk2, but I still would urge developers to stay one or
two major versions back in their requirements, so that their software is
easier to build on older versions of distros.
