If you used the standard fink install location (/sw I think it is),
you might try renaming the entire directory - then it at least won't
be in your path and any links into it would show errors (you can
always rename it back later). You might want to put /opt/local/bin
first in your path (or at least after /bin and /sbin). Also,
according to a post about darwinports and fink living together, the
former will (or used to - post dates to 2003) sometimes put X-related
applications in the X11 tree and not its own, which can (or used to)
confuse fink (but I think this means that the fink installer might
get confused, not necessarily the apps).
Finally, if you are having problems with gtk, you may be able to get
as well (and there is a nice report on porting the project to run on
OS X natively [there is a quartz variant of gtk+, which I'm guessing
is the one you probably ported.])
