I just tried to recreate the problem on a Debian Sarge virtual server.
"Unfortunately" gtk2 built successfully, no problem during
substitution of __PTHREAD_FLAGS__,

  ===> Configuring for gtk2+-2.12.0nb1
  => Fixing pthread flags.
  => Checking for portability problems in extracted files

  $ file work/gtk+-2.12.0/gdk-pixbuf/
  work/gtk+-2.12.0/gdk-pixbuf/ ASCII English text, with very
  long lines

  $ file work/gtk+-2.12.0/gdk-pixbuf/ | egrep "(executable .* script|shell script|text|Assembler source|libtool|Quake I or II world or extension|XML)" > /dev/null; echo $?

  $ ls -al work/.tools/bin/file 
  lrwxrwxrwx 1 heinz heinz 13 Oct  3 15:16 work/.tools/bin/file -> /usr/bin/file

On the other hand, I agree with Aleksey and stated that on the mailing
lists before: the "subst" check for text files should go. It has caused
problems several times already.
