You're right, I wasn't quite clear about what I meant.

I was thinking of a makefile.common so when you changed the gtk source 
version in pkgsrc, the gtk-demo package would automatically be pointing 
at the new gtk sources.  Basically I wanted to avoid people updating 
what version of gtk we have in pkgsrc and not updating what version of 
gtk-demo we have in pkgsrc.
