Seems to be a result of the CSW X11 lib relocation to /opt/csw/X11/lib.
While looking for gtk+-2.0, pkg-config searches for xcb, falls back to
legacy gnome-config and fails (issue pkg-config with --debug to trace
this down).

Pointing PKG_CONFIG_PATH to /opt/csw/X11/lib does the trick for me.
Should this PKG_CONFIG_PATH be added to the GAR defaults?
