Sounds like maybe you forgot to remove gtk-config? Probably in /usr/bin/, maybe 
in /usr/local/bin. (If you've already installed the newer version, it may be in 
two places. Remove only the one for the old version; test by running it with 
--version.) And of course, all old include and lib files should be removed, 
too. Don't forget <path>/lib/glib/glibconfig.h!

//GTK+'s stuff is stored in /usr/local/lib. 

Assuming you didn't run ./configure with a --prefix option. If you did, you 
should know where it went.

//If you installed it as an rpm,

If you've installed it with a package manager (i.e. it came with your RedHat or 
Debian (or others?) installation), you should _definitely_ remove it with the 
package manager. ('rpm -e glib gtk+' for rpm, you may have to force it (is that 
--no-deps? See the man page.) if you have other rpms installed that depend on 
this one.
