One of the .pc files relevant to GTK+ was in the wrong location
because I stupidly mixed Debian packages from different Debian
releases. Newer packages put the the .pc files in a different
location. pkg-config produced an error message to stderrr and exited
with nonzero status, but the configure script didn't pick this up.
