Said Samuel -

/Yes, we had discussed it a bit in #967798, it is an issue in Lazarus: 
fp-units-gtk2-3.2.0 used to have the libgtk2.0-dev dependency, but 
fp-units-gtk2-3.2.2 doesn't any more, *but it should*, it shouldn't be 
up to users of the gtk2 unit to know which C dependency it should take./

I disagree (in my ignorance). If Lazarus has a dependency (and it does) 
on libgtk2.0-dev then its Lazarus that should be marked as having that 
dependency, not FPC.

We tell Lazarus users they must install libgtk2.0-dev before building 
Lazarus here 
(disclaimer, its not an independent reference, I wrote it).

The same should apply to GTK2 based apps not using Lazarus (maybe Castle 
Game Engine ?), if you want to use the GTK2 widget set, install its -dev 

Sorry if I am butting into space above my grade, concerned to see 
downstream packages threatened.
