GTK2 & Cairo "Quartz" Variant

I was pleased to read about the possibility of running gtk2 apps  
without X11; one of the things that always bugs me about using the  
Gimp is having to click on a window to give it focus, then click  
again on a control in the window, for example the tools palette.

Anyway I saw the Cairo update hit today, 1.4.2_0, so I rebuilt cairo  
+quartz and pango, and tried to rebuild gtk2 +quartz. I get an error  
during the build:
gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I../.. -DG_LOG_DOMAIN=\"Gdk\" -

Warning: the following items did not execute (for gtk2):
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

I have the rest of the build log if you're interested. Has anyone  
managed to build gtk2 +quartz atop the new cairo 1.4.2 +quartz?
