Thanks for kind words - we appreciate it! :)

I'm a bit concerned about the gtk version - Slackware 11.0 shipped
2.8.20, so Dropline didn't just rebuild it - they actually bumped it
to a new major version.  That being the case, I'm guessing that there
is some function deprecated or rewritten in 2.10.x, and the version of
lablgtk you're trying to build (which we tested against the stock gtk)
doesn't ifdef around it.  However, that's *just* a guess.

I'm guessing that removing DLG isn't really an option, so I'm not
going to suggest that -- instead, you might try later releases of
lablgtk.  In fact, some pretty simple changes to the 12.0 script for
it should make it build just fine on 11.0.
