I think this is not enough (and might be harmful), see below.

... without taking into account what possible gtk version is used by 
users of libinput-pad.

So there is the ibus-setup-input-pad binary (built as part of
src:ibus-input-pad) which is directly linked to gtk2 (as specified by 
its build dependencies) and libinput-pad, which is linked to gtk3.

This poses two major issues:
1) gtk2 and gtk3 are not loadable in the same process, meaning
   ibus-setup-input-pad won't ever run (crash due to symbols conflict)
2) the build CFLAGS include both gtk2 (direct dependency) and gtk3
   (part of the libinput-pad CFLAGS), so there's a build clash

... this is indeed the wrong fix, if it is the only change you are 
planning to do right now. Again,

... because both input-pad and ibus-input-pad must use the *same* gtk 
version, be it gtk2 or gtk3, to avoid this clash.
