Yes, you're on -current.  -current has gtk+2-2.18.x, so you 
need the gtkmm version made for it.  You also need newer
glibmm (because glib is newer) and possibly others.

I really don't know how we can make this issue any clearer
in our FAQ -- the scripts (and by extension, the versions
of the software that they build) should NOT be expected to
work on a -current system.  If they do, that's great, but 
if they don't, oh well.  I know this is going to seem a bit
harsh, but again, oh well -- if you're going to be running
our (Slackware hat on) development branch (the -current tree),
then you've simply got to be able to figure this sort of 
thing out for yourself.

All that said, here's what I have installed on my -current box:
