What I saw from gnome2 and the likes, the preferred thing seems to use
--with-pkg-config-prog=/path/to/pkg_config and get the paths from that
program.  I've added --with-pkg-config-prog in configure.in.
I think that --with-gtk=/path was the GTK 1.x way to specify paths.  GTK 2.x
requires pkg_config.  pkg_config is a bit easier to handle, as it
sets all the libraries, ldflags and cflags correct, as opposed to have
configure look for required libraries.
