Hi Massimo,

If you download the tarball, you will need to unzip and tar the file, and 
then install the software with 

sudo make install

in the directory where you unpack all the files. This can be rather 
tedious as you might need if there are other dependencies which 
glibgtk-1.2.10-univ is dependent.

I would suggest getting Darwinport. Google darwinport and download the
.dmg file. Install this on your system. You will probably have to 
add the path /opt/local/bin to your profile, otherwise you won't see the
port command. Once you have added the path, you will need to sync with the 

port sync

port selfupdate

then you can download and install the latest available 
glibgtk-* by the command:

sudo port install "whatEverFile"

And that should be all that you need to do...you don't need to search for 
dependencies or such. This is a pretty good way to download and install 
open source software, and I have had some good luck with it.
