I've cleaned up that file so it no longer uses xpm at all. At least this file builds again on 2.0/2.2 - but I don't have a system to test further GTK 2.0/2.2 compilation.
Well, it now builds under GTK+ 2.2.4/GLib 2.2.3, at least.

However, a quick search for

#if GTK_CHECK_VERSION

results in 69 matches, most 2.4, some2.6 (gtk_file_chooser) and one 2.9 (gtk-label-select-on-focus)
So there are not that many places that could show problems here - the 
problem we have seems to be a lack of tests if GTK 2.0/2.2 is still running.
Of course, if no one uses these versions, it doesn't make a lot of sense 
to maintain them ;-)
...and there are some fairly significant differences between the pre-2.4 
and 2.4-and-later code, such as the stuff to handle the file dialog.
