You need to rewrite the code to create the layout and call
pango_layout_get_pixel_extents() to get its size.

That's right if the layout should be "themed", if it shouldn't be
themed then it should just be gdk_draw_layout() instead of

You probably don't need the pixmap with GTK 2.

It all depends a bit on the specific code you are working on.
