Or you could do:

./configure --enable-shared --prefix=/usr/local
so that it installs in /usr/local instead of /usr.  That way, the new
Gtk stuff won't interfere with the existing redhat stuff.  To use the
new version, simply do "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib"...

At least this seems to work for me.
