At a guess, mismatched versions.  I've just done a 5.1-ish build
(gcc-3.3.5, glibc-2.3.3-lfs-5.1, 2.4.27 kernel)  using the following
(along with a lot of other stuff):

aspell- with aspell-en-0.51-1,

Some of your packages are newer than mine, some are older.  From memory,
it is necessary to keep gtk+, glib, atk, and pango reasonably in sync.
Your gtk+ looks nice and new, your pango looks a bit old, and your glib
sounds very old.  Try upgrading glib and pango (and atk) to current
versions.  I vaguely remember I had to upgrade pango or atk to work with
X-6.7.0 because some of the header locations changed.

(For unspecified gnome packages, I was using recent 2.6-series as listed
in the 2.6 stable garnome package - one day I'll manage to work out the
order that builds everything.)
