the gtk binary install has no gtk-config lookalike at all, only pkg-config. I think it's a replacement for a whole set of *-config scripts.

I tried --with-gtk-prefix, but it still wants the gtk-config script (which isn't there).

I think this issue is moot if gtk1.3 is explicitly not supported (yet).

I have the same problem on my FreeBSD system: I have gtk12-config,
but no gtk-config.  Apply the following patch to aclocal.m4 (which I
propose for CVS), run automake, and your problems should be over.
Alternatively, use the --with-gtk-prefix option to ./configure.
Try ./configure --help for details.
