Or you could use gdk_imlib. Here is the function you would use:
GdkImlibImage *gdk_imlib_create_image_from_drawable(GdkWindow *gwin,
GdkBitmap * gmask, int x, int y, int width, int height);
You could use this on the root window, setting the x and y coordinates to
the mouse click, and set height, width to 1. Then you can get the RGB
value out of the GdkImlibImage structure.
