I have updated the page with explicit installation instructions. I
have also updated the package itself to contain pkg-config and libpng
for convenience, so please re-visit
and let me know if everything works as advertized.
Let me repeat that you need the above only if you plan to compile Gtk-
based things from sources - you do *not* need it if you are just
using Gtk-based R packages.
In response to the other follow-ups: the above tar-ball is the
*binary* so you don't need to compile it from sources - that's the
whole point. It is non-trivial to compile glib/gtk, because the
official sources are way old and contain several bugs that have only
been fixed in patches that float around the web. The above binary
contains the patches (mostly the same as in darwinports) in addition
to modifications that allow universal compilation. Also it was
compiled using the gcc 4.0.3 compiler that is used by R as opposed to
using Apple's gcc.
I'm still waiting for someone to provide a similar package for glib2 ;).
