Did you install your own libgtk without using packages? The only way
dpkg-shlibdeps (the package that figures out the shared library
dependancies) can know how to set up a shared library dependancy is if
a file /var/lib/dpkg/info/*.shlibs exists that defines a dependancy
Since there are no gtk+ 1.1.7 .debs out yet (1.1.9 .debs are building
right now) I'll assume you installed your own, and thus you don't have
a shlibs file for 1.1.7 in /var/lib/dpkg/info/, as there is no package
for them to depend on. :)
Please wait until I release 1.1.9 .debs.
