Sorry this is slightly off-topic:
The RH machine on which I do some development work (but don't have
root access) only has gtk 2.4.13 (it runs KDE). I was able to download
gtk2-perl and compile a local version against this old version of gtk+
with no problem. But now, I would like to use some features from gtk
2.6. Is it a big deal to compile a local version of gtk 2.6?
do you strictly depend on gtk+ 2.6 (embedded development, no cairo)?
otherwise, my suggestion would be to use gtk+ 2.10.7.
in any case, building and installing a local version of gtk+ is not a
big deal; I do it routinely for my development environment for GNOME and
a solution for a working sandbox is to get jhbuild from GNOME's SVN
repository, install it, configure it (it's a matter of a couple of
changes in the sample configuration that comes along with it) and then
jhbuild build gtk+
which should set everything up for a successful build of the whole
shebang. this, alas!, means installing the autotools and python too.
otherwise, you should do what jhbuild does for you, and set up a sandbox
where installing the dependencies of gtk+: glib, cairo, pango, and atk.
Presumably, I will need more recent versions of GLib, Pango, & ATK too?
and, for gtk+ >= 2.8, cairo.
