you can install every version of the libs, the problem is only for
the -dev stuff. My real problem is that every version from 1.1.7
to 1.1.16 comes in a different package, and that i have to remove
them by hand every time there is a new one that i compile, very
stupid stuff. I don't want 10 versions of glib/gtk installed ...
