whew its beeen a long night...

it turns out i can't build gtkmm because the gnome mirror doesn't always
server old files. closest i found to work is 2.24.3 (2.24.2 in SlackBuild).

after a few modifications to the script, i found that gtkmm requires
pangomm (not listed on the site).

anyway new gtk/gnome stuff seems to use xz files so replace

tar xvf foo.tar.gz


xz -d foo.tar.xz
tar xvf foo.tar

but i'm not sure how that affects things like sbopkg that might cache
downloads. (xz -d file.tar.xz removes the .xz file and leaves only the tar)

i'll keep everyone posted on notes and try to contact maintainers as well.
