'gtkperf' was also not in Ubuntu 7.10's repositories. I downloaded the
.deb file from the sourceforge.net website. It installed without

I have also noticed a drop in speed since I switched from GTK1 to
GTK2, but mine is definitely not as slow as you describe. Thought I
run my Lazarus locally, not over a LAN.
