You can try to get the pre-compiled snapshots from;
they are in rpm format compiled for Linux/i386. Note however that, as often
with projects in heavy development, some things can improve or broke from
one version to the other; and you may in some cases want to experiment with
the latest sources from CVS (in gtk-pango branch of gtk+ module)

I have, however, one question: which encoding should be used for the po files?
There is some people voluntering to translate the po file of Gtk+ to Arabic;
should it be done in utf-8 or iso-8859-6 ?
And what about existing po files, must they be converted to utf-8 before
release of gtk+ 1.4 ?

Thank you.
