Hello Yves-Alexis Perez.

Thanks for your quick followup. Some additional information from
me below which maybe I should have remembered to include in
my initial mail. Not sure how useful it is though...

I've also quickly looked at the build logs and the sources to confirm
that the gtk+-2.0 development packages seems to be successfully installed
during the build and should be findable via pkg-config.

My gut feeling is rather that there might be something wrong with the
home-brew m4 macros, since searching for gtk+2.0 is just the first time
the home-brew macro is used in the configure script....
Move searching for gtk+-2.0 further down and I'd assume you'll instead
see an error for something else which would then be the first thing
search for using the home-brew macro XDT_CHECK_PACKAGE ...
Makes me wonder why the normal PKG_CHECK_MODULES macros doesn't suffice?

If I'm not mistaken there where recent binNMU attempts because of the
ongoing libical transition.
