It shouldn't be possible for me to use the wrong compilation option -
the configuration is defined in the Debian rules file.

OK, if you think this is something local, I can't argue against that
since I don't have enough experience. In terms of a library versioning
issue, ibus-gtk3 is after libgtk-3-0 (>= 3.9.10) which is of course

For anyone else interested, you can test for the problem with:


apt-get source libgtk-3-dev
cd <source dir>
dpkg-buildpackage -b --jobs=auto


The build takes a long time but will eventually reach the testing stage,
where the bug previously mentioned appears.

In the meantime I'm building in a VM with ibus-gtk3 removed.
