You're right, I think we are going to want a way to compile GTK+ with
many features and widgets removed. The fact is that even GTK+ 1.2 is
too big for many embedded applications, and we don't want to handicap
GTK+ on the desktop for this reason.

So the thing to do is something like:
 configure --disable-noncore-widgets --disable-pixbuf --disable-xim 

i.e. allow GTK+ to be stripped down at compile time.

This is how GNU libc works for example. You can strip it down for
embedded use.
