That would  be possible, but some patching of Makefile is required, as 
shown in this patchfile [0] for GTK 2.8.10 from DFB's CVS repository, 
where the GDKDFB project lived for many years before entering GTK 
Also, some bugfixes applied to the DFB backend after it was merged 
into GTK mainline should be backported.

I just filed reports (and a patch) for two bugs [1][2] that currently 
prevent GTK 2.9.1 from compiling with the DFB backend.
If GTK team fixes those bugs before GTK 2.9.2 is released, we could 
build the GTKDFB libraries without the need for patches to original 
source tarballs.
Note that GTK 2.9.1 requires pango 1.13 (not udeb-packaged yet), while 
GTK 2.9.0 requires only pango 1.12 (available as udeb): if at GTK 2.9.2 
release time pango 1.13 should not have udeb-packaged yet, backporting 
patches for bugs 342091 and 342093 to GTK 2.9.0 could be an option too.
