Is that really necessary?

Does GTK-3 break the backwards compatibility to GTK-2?

If not, we should instead make a decision on whether the GTK-3 "beta"
(i.e.>= 2.90.0) are usable or not.

Otherwise, we should rename both, i.e. gtk ->  gtk2, and name the
new one gtk3. But I really hope this won't be necessary.

A related fact is that the pkg-config .pc files for gtk and related libraries, including glib, are version-specific, i.e., "gtk+-2.0.pc".

We should probably just wait unless there is a pressing need to move to the gtk3 (beta?) branch now. For one thing, librsvg does not build with gtk 2.90.0.

By the way, once I typed by accident:

    i686-pc-mingw32-pkg-config --cflags glib

to which the answer was:

    sh: glib-config: command not found
    sh: glib-config: command not found
    sh: glib-config: command not found

It this unexpected?
