After lots of googling I found reference to the fact that wxWindows uses 
gtk functions that are supposed to be internal use only (i.e. all the 
_gtk* functions). The version of gtk that ships with fc2 no longer 
exports these symbols. My solution was to patch gtk to re-allow export 
of the internal symbols -- see attached patch.

I could not get gtk+-2.4.0 to build on my system starting from the 
(supposedly) fc2 src rpm. So I ended up building a gtk+-2.4.1 rpm using 
the patched source as mentioned above. From there, all was well with 

Mail me off-list if you'd like a copy of my modified src rpm.
