The "old" libgtk+2.0-directfb0-udeb are no longer usable and will have to 
be created from scratch; the fact that the old ones are still around for 
amd64 is an error. 
See this thread [1] for an earlier discussion on the subject. Alastair is 
currently not involved in this. AFAIK Davide is keeping tabs on 
upstream/packaging developments for that.

Building CDs is quite tricky and you currently need to have a local mirror 
for that. I think we can do very well with building an image based on the 
current mini.iso build system for now by just creating a new target and 
including everything needed for gtk.
I'll see what I can do for that based on Eugeniy's work.
