I would stick with gtk+-2.0.4.  I have tried every version from
2.0.5 to 2.0.8 and they all have some small annoying bugs.  I was
having windows focus all by themselves, folders in the file dialog
not showing until I moved the mouse over the area, etc.  Maybe
wait till 2.0.9 comes out.  Also, if you post the error message
try and post the last gcc invocation right before the error to
help find the problem.
