Expect some problems on Linux as well, all major vendors ship with GTK 2.4
at the moment. Only the latest Debian has GTK+ 2.6 as system default. Thus
some LD_LIBRARY_PATH magic seems to be required for RPM builds, but maybe it
works with 2.4 runtimes as well. Who knows. History repeating, DLL hell on
Linux ...
