This just begs the question of whether any *other* properly built RPM will
give you any less grief - the usual problem hit with RawHide is that RPM's are
tagged with their dependencies, which you can bypass *at your own peril*
by using --nodeps.

Having said that, the Rawhide RPMs for the latest releases (Glib 2.2.3, pango
1.2.5, atk 1.3.5 - gtk+ 2.2.4 hasn't shown up as of last night but probably
will within the next 48 hours or so) are a slam-dunk drop-in if you're already
in RedHat 9.0 - you may wish to consider upgrading and then going for the
rawhide releases of just those).
