     I really regret to say this, but, having followed exactly your
instruction I receive the same error message (different serial of course) -
XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS -is- set to 1!!!
     I even tried with the LD_LIBRARY_PATH for compilation explicitly set
to the lib64 versions - with no difference! Nothing else which I have
compiled/used produces any X11/gtk errors so far as I can tell - so I
wonder??
