Simply not the case as far as we know - tons of people have compiled
GTK 1.2.x on quite a few non-gcc compilers. It works fine.
You can't, however, compile GLib with gcc and then GTK with
non-gcc. Perhaps that's what you are trying to do? Or maybe you have
old GLib headers still installed somewhere that used gcc?

That's because you compiled the libs with gcc. You have to compile
GLib and any apps using it with the same compiler.

Only if GLib was built with gcc. If you build GLib with sunpro, then
it won't use those extensions and neither will apps.
