 3. now run your test program that is based on gtk+; will use fresh
 gtk+ library, the rest of the libraries come from the system
 4. hack gtk+, then type "make install" to refresh your build with the
 new changes (takes <15s on modern systems)
 5. go to step 3.

Only FIFTEEN SECONDS?? That is amazingly quick. I thought I had a
reasonably fast computer, but just the install step after make is
successful takes 53 seconds. Most of that time is spent by libtool
relinking libraries and it seems (to me) improbable that it can be
done in less than 15 seconds.
It depends what files you are working on. If you make changes on header files, then a whole lot of stuff will get recompiled (due to the dependencies), amounting to several minutes. In my specific case however, just a single .c file had to be recompiled in every go, and linked with the rest of the object files to make libgtk+.
