I don't have any links I'm afraid. I only learnt GTK+ 2.0, and never
used 1.2. I did the work with nothing more than both API references.
It's a while back, but it was basically:
gtk_object_* -> g_object_* (except for gtk_object_destroy)
gtk_signal_* -> g_signal_*
and the same applies to all the casts:
GTK_OBJECT -> G_OBJECT
That was about 80% of all the changes, but note that this is not
strictly required: all these have compatibility wrappers.
The rest of the changes were a little more involved (IIRC the object
property API is different), but in most cases it was simply a matter
of finding an appropriate equivalent and doing a little reworking.
YMMV, since it depends on exactly what GTK+ features the code uses.
If you like, I can take a look at it and suggest what needs doing.
