They don't clash and don't even need to be installed into the same
directory.  Programs that use gtk 1.2 will continue to do so.  while
programs that use gtk2 will use that library.  When you compile a gtk2
program, thanks to the magic of pkg-config, the configure script should
be able to find the gtk2 libraries (if not, set the env variable
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig or where ever).

Personally, I install gtk2 libraries from my distribution packager
(redhat) and they install to /usr.
