As Philip explained earlier in the thread, Valgrind can only accept a
single suppression file. So, if GTK+ ships a suppression file, it
would need to include suppression rules for all its dependencies, and
you would still be unable to add your own on top of that. The only way
I realize you're talking about the default suppressions file, but of
course valgrind can load many non-default suppression files at once.
Up to 100, according to the man page.

you were quicker than me :) But yep, up to 100 and I think if an app has
more that 100 dependencies they've got worse problems that exceeding
this count.


$ valgrind --suppressions=/first/file.supp --suppressions=/second/file.supp ...

So I think there would be some value in shipping separate, official
.supps for glib, gobject, gio, gtk etc etc.

We'd need one for each .pc file, so Stefan's suggestion of a
pkg-config var sounds very reasonable to me.
