Is this just a Win32 issue? I've have the same exact problem. I'm not
understanding the solution presented though. Do you mean that a line should
be added to my ppc386.cfg file that reads something like this:(?) 


If so, where should that go in the ppc386.cfg file? I've looked that file
over (and over and over) and I see no reference to gtk at all. Now I do see: 
# searchpath for units and other system dependent things

Should something be added here? I've tried all I know to do. I even copied
the gtk and related .dlls to every possibly related directory and I still
get the error. I've seen many references to GTK in makefile, makefile.fpc,
and a number of other files and different directories, but figgererd it out
yet, I aint. Any reports of someone actually having this up and running on
a win95 box?  
Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance
