I am not sure what the solution is for your problem, but as far as I tested,
GNU smalltalk ( ) and the GNU smalltalk 
browser work on Solaris 11.4.

Solaris 11.4 has a a GNOME 3 (3.24) destkop but it also supports older GNOME 2.

By "works" I mean that the GNU smalltalk browser works and seems to use the 
compatibility older libgtk libraries,
which are provided by the OS for compatibility.

Perhaps other operating systems with a GNOME 41 or 43 desktop (current version 
at seems 43),
may also provide required libraries of GNOME 2.
