In my case, the Debian Squeeze/stable, I only have the GTK+ 2.x from the repository, unless I use the mixed repository from stable and testing. But, according to my experience, use a mixed repository is dangerous, it will bring more and more packages dependence issues with cann't be solved easily. So, in my case, if I want to use GTK+ 3.x, the best way should be compile it manually.

So, as you can see, apt-get can let them coexist (all in all, apt has
the power of super-cow, hasn't it?); no need to recompile everything
from scratch.

But if I compile my app on my system:

$ ldd gtag =>  (0xb7745000) => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ (0xb7260000) => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ (0xb71e2000) => /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ (0xb71bf000)

Should I want to link it to gtk-2, all I have to do is to change
compilation and linking options in order to point to gtk-2 (but I don't
want; I like new features in gtk-3:)
