there are no doubt a few reasons.  here are a couple: 1) GTK+ if I'm not
mistaken was developed first and primarily on Linux and maybe *BSD
systems, which all seem to have "third party" (not app, not library)
package management/installation applications which make this a
non-issue.  2) it's a volunteer project, and probably no one has had
time to make this type of process really easy.  (Maybe you'd like to
make this your baby?)
