My idea was along the lines of adding the following:

    sed -i -e 's/libgtk2.0-0\([^,]*, \)//'
    sed -i -e 's/libgtk-3-0/libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.8.0) | libgtk-3-0/'

That is assuming we want to prefer gtk2 over gtk3.

I was able to get rid of of some additional dependencies for gtk3:
libcairo-gobject2 (>= 1.10.0), and for gtk2: libfontconfig1 (>=
2.9.0), libfreetype6 (>= 2.2.1), libpangoft2-1.0-0 (>= 1.14.0) by
making changes to GTK2_LDFLAGS and GTK3_LDFLAGS and placing LIBS after
the objects as per the attached patch.
