I also have some trouble with multiple programs using GTK.
If I use the dev Version of gimp (gtk2.8) then gaim does not work correctly.
The Inkscape team has solved this problem by including all the dependencies in their Inkscape path. Also the .rc file.
Everaldo, you might have a look how Inkscape is doing this by downloading a bla.win32.zip package from sourceforge.

I check and I really cant change icons in gtkrc files, I can chage only
with GTK API call. (under win)

Ok. You are sure.

I like to have a more "Windows compliant" icon theme on my GTK
applications (only under Win, on Linux all is fine), I make this with
API calls but I need to make it in all applications and is nice to have
a GTK package that dont need to make this.
I think that if I can compile my own GTK under Win my problems will be
solved, but I have a lot of errors. You know a tutorial that explain how
build GTK libs under Win or can help me to do this?
