	GTK+ should (probably) still support that, and tracking that
down I'll leave for others.  But...

	Simply install your development versions of glib/gtk+ in a
separate prefix.  Say, /usr/local/test.  So, build glib with
--prefix=/usr/local/test.  Then, when building GTK+, you only need to
make sure that the 1.3.x glib-config is in the PATH before the 1.2.7
one.  eg:

[/usr/build/gtk+]$ PATH=/usr/local/test:$PATH ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/test

	As long as the proper glib-config is first in your PATH, the
1.3.x version of GTK+ will link against the 1.3.x glib.  You may also
have to update LD_LIBRARY_PATH or with this new library
directory (/usr/local/test/lib).
	To build applications against the 1.3.x gtk+/glib libraries, do
the same thing with your PATH as you configure those applications.
