I asked Tor Lillqvist the porter of gtk to win32, why the function
gtk_paned_set_gutter_size was missing and he gave me this excellent answer:

Yes, gtk_paned_set_gutter_size has been obsoleted. It is #defined in
gtkcompat.h as '(void) 0'. That's what it means when the Windows port
is based on the development version of GTk+, there isn't necessarily
binary compatility between snapshots. GTK+ 1.4 will definitely not be
binary compatible with GTk+ 1.2, and not necessarily even 100% source

This function shouldn't be used any longer. The docs/Changes-1.4.txt file

- gtk_paned_set_gutter_size() has been removed, since the small handle tab
  has been changed to include the entire area previously occupied by
  the gutter.
