I haven't yet installed gtk 3.10, so I've only been sporadically investigating what is newly-deprecated in there. The stock-items stuff I've mentioned before, on this list. You might try a fresh checkout from svn. That will probably fix most, or maybe even all, of the problems you encountered. At a cost, though. Current gtk themes probably won't yet have replacements for gtk's default icons. Having relied on those up to now, you'll see buttons, menus etc without icons, or with missing-icon icons. On the plus side, there will be a squillion other icons available from the default theme, which can be selected for use in the toolbars. Maybe I can find a way to keep the deprecated stock-items in play, without causing so much compiler-verbage. I don't know why your build wouldn't link. Although you got lots of warnings, I didn't see any errors. It's possible that this gtk actually discarded one or two things by mistake, instead of deprecating.
