You will need to install the packages yourself: For windows there is no
packaging system, so we (optionally) provide the stuff that is needed to
build. On Linux the distributions provide the packages (and care about
updates etc).
The gtk package on my system (opensuse 11.4) is called gtk2-devel, it may
be called differently on other Linux distributions.

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
