Ah yeah, there are some issues with 0.99 on newer issues due to its
age.  We really need to get a new release out.  It's just finding the
time.  Try building with --disable-Werror as a first start.  It's
probably worth familiarising yourself with the git version anyway, as
you'll need to use this to make changes anyway.

native/jni/gtk-peer/ controls the build logic for the Gtk+ peer.
