  Looks good.  I have now committed changes to gtk10 and the
corresponding packages depending on it that allow them to co-exist with
any newer gtk.  Specifically, the include file hierarchy is now
installed under ${X11BASE}/include/gtk10, the libraries in
${X11BASE}/lib are called libgtk10, libgdk10, and libglib10, and the
config executable in ${X11BASE}/bin is called gtk10-config.

  Basically all you have to do to make a gtk10 package compile is to use
the compile/link options provided by gtk10-config (as opposed to
gtk-config).  For most packages that use GNU autoconfig, this requires a

  CONFIGURE_ENV+= GTK_CONFIG="${X11BASE}/bin/gtk10-config"

  or a

  CONFIGURE_ARGS= --with-gtk-config=${X11BASE}/bin/gtk10-config

  in their Makefiles.

  No changes are required to packages running under gtk+-1.1.x ...
