Crud. No, I'm not the admin of this box, just a user.  I didn't try anything
special - just ran the configure script as mentioned before.  It's odd that
GTK/GDK would be broken as I have no issue with any of the GUI apps
installed on my box.  Guess I'll have to see what I can find out.

Thanks anyways,
