My suggestion is : get the 1.1.12, and then run, first in glib,

./configure --prefix=/opt/gtk+-1.1.12
make ; make install

Then either configure your LD_LIBRARY_PATH =/opt/gtk+-1.1.12/lib either add
this path to your /etc/

Then in the gtk+ directory run :

export PATH=/opt/gtk+-1.1.12/bin:$PATH
./configure --prefix=/opt/gtk+-1.1.12 --with-glib-prefix=/opt/gtk+-1.1.12
make ; make install

Normally everything should be alllright, (at least I does on my box, a
RH 5.2, I've got six different versions of GTK installed, because some
pre-compiled gnome application need different versions, and I'm coding with
the 1.1.11)

I don't know if it is the best way to do it, but it works !

Bye, and happy gtk-ing !
