Those GTK+ macros was deprecated in latest 2.19.x release...

Thanks for your patch but I think it shouldn't be a blocker. This will be deprecated in 2.19, stable version is still 2.18.
I think that even with the latest development version of gtk, you cannot remove all these macros, I don't see an urgency here. There is a similar bug in Anjuta (#597365) and it's still pending.
Should we fix all these for 2.30 release ?

A blocker bug is described as "Blocks development and/or testing work" and as you can see here GDL fails to build, making impossible to test the GNOME suite. I've always marked build failure bug as blocker.

AFAIK GNOME 2.30 will be based on GTK+ 2.20 (stable). It's a common habit for modules in GNOME Desktop depends on "development" features; for example Nautilus or Epiphany 2.29 depends on GTK+ 2.19 for the new GtkSpinner API.
But GDL is a library, so I understand you could waver to depend on latest GTK+ available.

See the proposed patch.

GDL have to build against modules that will be used in 2.30. I think you can choose between remove deprecated symbols and depend on latest GTK+ or activate deprecation flags in build (git checkout should build too). If so, please check recent thread on desktop-devel-list about proper usage of deprecation flags.
Thanks for these informations, I better understand the issue.
I have removed all deprecation flags so it should work now but I cannot really check as I have only Gtk 2.18 here.
Marking as duplicate of the deprecation bug as this one will in the end be fixed when we have no more deprecated symbols.
