Yes, sorry, gtk1 doesn't build anymore, thanks to the latest gettext update.

Fixes welcome.

mldonkey uses lablgtk which uses gtk1. Programs using gtk1 need to be rewritten to use gtk2. lablgtk was rewritten to use gtk2; that version is in the lablgtk2 port. Not sure if mldonkey can be updated to use the lablgtk2 port instead or if mldonkey needs to be rewritten to do that.
