23 What if I want things to be built without gtk where ever possible, but I
24 want things that have to use either gtk1 or gtk2 to use gtk2?
26 Under the current method this is what -gtk gtk2 should do, since
27 something that has to use gtk won't have a gtk flag, but if there's a
28 choice between gtk1 and gtk2, it should have a gtk2 flag.
30 I don't see how this would be possible under ferringb's scheme, so I
31 prefer the current way (though if ferringb's way of doing it could be
32 modified to do this without getting too ugly I'd be just as happy with
33 that).
