There is an alternative workaround to this.  There is an ugly hack in
the file that allows you configure to Classpath with
--disable-gtk-peer on a platform that does not have GTK+ 2.x.x.  

This workaround allows you to build / use Classpath for non-GUI apps if
you are stuck with an older Linux distro that only has GTK+ 1.x.x.
(Retrofitting GTK+ 2.x.x can be really hard because of the number of
libraries and applications that need to be upgraded.  At least, that
was what I found with RedHat 7.2.)

P.S.  This should be documented in the HACKING file, since the question
      seems to come up every few months.
