These days the opposite will be true - you can precompile the GTK+ headers
all in one go and include them as a binary header. I've tried this and it
works well.

One caveat is that you can only include one binary header. But, you can
make a custom header file that simply includes gtk.h, and any other
headers a particular part of your program needs and precompile that.

The savings can be significant (on the order of 30-40% speedup in my own
