The prototype of your function and the signal do not match
thus the connection can not be completed.  Change the 
callback declaration.

You have a very crappy compiler for generating error messages...
here let me reduce the error make it more clear.
 'Gtk::EmitProxySignal1<int,_GdkEventAny*>::connect (Slot1<void,_GdkEventAny*>
 /usr/local/include/gtk--/proxy.h:208: candidates are:
  Gtk::ProxySignal1<int, _GdkEventAny*>::connect(const Slot1(int,_GdkEventAny 
*> &)

Thus you are passing a Slot1<void,GdkEventAny*> and it wants a
Slot1<int, GdkEventAny*>.  Thus you should change your callback
to return an int.

Hope it helps.
