Hi Anthony,

here is a new version of the fix.


I took into account you suggestions. Now the implementation loads gtk 
API if it exists on the library path. If it does not exists we try to 
load gnome API. If it is not successful we do not support the functionality.

I introduced a couple of files to keep gnome interface separately like 
we do with gtk. I expect that we remove them as soon as all our 
supported OS configurations will be have installed the proper GTK 
library by default.

As for the synchronization section, I do not see how to use the 
fp_gdk_threads_* functions with gnome API so I put the critical under 
gtk-specific if-clause section.

Thank you,
