GTK+-DirectFB is only yet available as version 2.0.9. I'm working on
the port to 2.2 and actually I promised to have it completed by now
but work got in the way and so it's still only GTK+-2.0.

you obviously configured for the linux-fb backend, not for DirectFB.
But wait, did you really use that configure line? It doesn't look as
if it could have worked at all. Perhaps you check what options you
really used by looking at config.log.

sorry, since these are not used by GTK+-DirectFB, I won't be able to
help you with these options.
