Please read the faqs and tutorials on the gtk site.  They clearly
explain how to build programs using gtk2.  gtk 1.2.x and gtk 2.2.x will
not conflict and can coexist.  The script to get flags is:

pkg-config --cflags gtk+-2.0


pkg-config --libs gtk+-2.0

pkg-config replaces all the old "*-config" scripts with a consistent and
sane script that finds them all.  Be aware that you should install gtk2
from rpms.  If you don't then pkg-config won't find the flags unless you
explicitly point it at the place where gtk2 installed it's .pc file.
