Probably not.  If the other system is F8, then it can use the binary 
package.  If the other system is not F8, then you can't expect the build 
process to be exactly the same there.

If you want to build the application on Fedora 8, I recommend not 
building the libraries from source.  You are likely to create a 
situation where you break the working applications on your system. 
Instead, install "gtk2-devel" with yum.  That should pull in everything 
that you need to build a GTK+ application.
