GNOME is a collection of packages, so you can mix recent versions of
libraries with ancient ones, assuming the minumum library dependencies
are satisfied. So on some (usually self-compiled) setups, they are
mixed. Assuming development packages are installed, and your
PKG_CONFIG_PATH is set up properly, you can for instance use
  pkg-config --modversion libgnome-2.0
to get the version of the “libgnome” library package.

Maybe you could briefly describe what problem you are trying to solve?
