So, pkg-config found Gtk+ 2.3.5.
What could be possibly the reason why it found Gtk+ 2.3.5?
Well, it found Gtk+ 2.3.5 because you have Gtk+ 2.3.5
Now, if you know you have a Gtk+ 2.3.5 installation (or
remains of it) somewhere, you should be able to find it
using locate or other standard means. However, as you know
pkg-config found it, you can ask pkg-config:
pkg-config --variable=prefix gtk+-2.0
pkg-config --debug gtk+-2.0 2>&1 | grep 'gtk+-2.0.*file'
The first command prints where the Gtk+ installation thinks
to be located (more precisely the prefix), the second
command prints where the .pc file actually is (normally
these locations are consistent).
What remains: to remove the offending installation of Gtk+
