My point really was that it's silly to drop the graphical installer as a
target for Etch if you need to compile differently for gtk-dfb anyway;
so if the regular gtk2 packages aren't at the correct version, having a
different gtk2 source package which compiles the .udeb (and nothing
more--unless you need some -dev packages to be able to build the
installer image) would seem to be the obvious solution.
