Is the source incompatible with the new gtkhtml or is it only the
configure tests? I have a pretty decent configure test that works
around the problems with gtkhtml changing its pkgconfig file names every
couple FC releases if that's your issue. I haven't had to actually do
any code porting to migrate my package between releases, though.
