You mentioned on your website that gtk+ 2.8 or newer is required. You
should also mention that pango 1.16 or newer is required. The latest
version will not build on FC5 for FC6 despite having gtk+ 2.8 or
newer. For some reason it will also not build on x86_64 against
rawhide, looks like a toolchain problem. I've sent an email to fedora
developers to get their opinion. I'll keep you updated.
