 I don't know where to start:
     - gtk-config is from the Gtk+1.2 times and this was replaced by the
 generic pkg-config utility which honors PKG_CONFIG_PATH (which is set) and
 the SYSROOT path

     - xbill's is simply executing "gtk-config" and find that
 in your path and is using the result... again with pkg-config this would
 not happend

     - xbill's buildsystem should search for the tool called arm-angstrom
 ...-gtk-config but it does not.

     - xbill's buildsystem is not within the control of Openmoko.

 Try irc (feel free to message me for help) or a development mailinglist to
 get support in compiling software. Your options are basicly go for native
 building, go for insane stuff like scratchbox, cope with broken
 buildsystems and fix them.

 Sorry, but I think this should not be handled in this bugtracker.
