The file README.1st.txt contains fairly good instructions on how to compile for 
GTK2, don't think I can give a better explanation.
Ignore the author;s warnings about it beginning experimental: Gnumed is the 
ultimate stress-test for wxWindows, and it works fine.
You will need to install gtk2 itself ("apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev") first.

I hasten to add Gnumed should work fine on GTK 1.2 -- no differences are 
exposed to us as programmers, so there is no pressing need to 
upgrade. The reason why I did it is to demonstrate te use of GTK2 themes, which 
allow gnumed to achieve Richard Terry's stringent 
 aesthetic requirements, such as borderless widgets.
