Interestingly making the offending file by typing 
make -C gdk gdkenumtypes.h
in the BUILDDIR built it right there (not in the SRCDIR)
so I suspect this could be fixable by a dependency or something.

Never try to build with static linking. That does not work at all
because all demos/tests try to link dynamically. :/

Nope, I tried that not just to see whether it works but also to
get the error message again to post it. After building this one file 
manually it went through though....

You can rely on me to give it a good spanking if you do. I'm doing all
sorts of nasty stuff here that detects any problem....
