gtk/directfb: Duplicate symbols in gdkwindow[-directfb].c

Is there any new news concerning this emailing?

I am experiencing the same issue. Using releases previous to 2.13 appear to work with no multiple definitions. I have noticed that the gdkwindow.c file is different between the releases.

I'm having trouble (cross) compiling gtk with the directfb frontend.
(I have asked the same question on the directfb mailing list today.)

I have basically followed the instructions on
(which seems to be unavailable since a couple of days, but it's still in
google's cache).

When I compile gtk, I get a few dozen duplicate symbols, all internal
aliases of function names of the form IA__*. It looks as if some functions
in  gdk/gdkwindow.c should be replaced by those in
gdk/directfb/gdkwindow-directfb.c, but the generic ones are still compiled
and linked to the libraries. The error pops up when gtk-query-immodules-*
is being built (obviouosly I didn't remove it from the Makefile as the
instructions suggested), and will also occur when I try to build test

I tried a few obvious fixes like removing the functions in question (also
from gdkaliasdef.c) or even replacing the generic file with the one in the
directfb subfolder, but then I get undefined symbols in different flavours.
I eventually just linked with -z muldefs, but then the test application
crashes with a null pointer reference in the gdkwindow vicinity which makes
me suspicious, somehow.
