I guess I shouldn't have been as short.

I still have gtk2+ installed, and even firefox depends on it.

I think that upstream stopped developing gtk2+ and will not fix it for
changes in glib2 (which is still being updated), because they
concentrate on gtk3+ (and gtk4+) nowadays.

So we'll have to fix this ourselves or look at what other
distributions are doing.
