I was disappointed to see this because i had been looking forward
to the Xinerama support. Today i finally had time to investigate
what linking problem you were referring to.
The problem is that a program trying to link with GTK+ doesn't
know it needs to link with Xinerama. On some platforms that sort
of thing is worked out automatically, but i guess NetBSD can't do
that (see pkg/19777 for another example of this). So all we need
to do is get -lXinerama into the pkgconfig file. For pkg/19777,
we had to patch the pkgconfig file. GTK+ provides a
--enable-explicit-deps argument to the configure script to take
care of this for us.
So i think the correct fix is to use that. Using this patch, i
have Xinerama support in GTK+ and GConf2 built and installed
successfully. Now i have to rebuild all the other GTK+ 2.x
packages i use, so i'll report back if i find any failures.
