A couple of points:
1) You may be running into the obsolete version of freetype that come pre-installed in /usr/X11R6. I make sure that these headers are hidden or removed.

You need to run Software Update to get 10.5.1. This will not change anything in terms of the Developer Tools, however.

Which headers should then be used?

The ones you get from building a current copy of freetype.

2) Why are you not using MacPorts or fink? I also have builds available @

Probably because I'm very new to Mac :-)
On I find MacPorts verson 1.6.0, but that doesn't tell anything about what it contains - does it contain gtk and all that stuff? Probably not, it is only 2 MB.

The MacPorts program automatically downloads, builds and installs the software. It does not contain pre-built binaries (fink works the same way).

One other thing! The packages must be available for normal download, not requiring a small install program that in turn starts the download.
In other words - I must be able to download it on my Linux machine, put it on some media and installe from there on my Mac.

Looks interesting, but does not seem to be available for OS X 10.5 and intel or do I misunderstand the naming convention - believe osx5 is for OS X 10.5

I found gtk+2-2.12.5-1 on your site too, but still only for ppc

That is correct. I currently don't have a 10.5 Intel build machine (if I did, I wouldn't a 10.4 machine. I hope to change this soon). I gave the link more as a reference, in terms of what i did to build gtk+2.
