All these packages should be tested and stabled together.
I am part of the x86 team, but would like another member to test to make sure. I've been running these packages on an otherwise stable box for about a month, with no outstanding issues.
The specific problems with NVIDIA and RenderAccel have been "addressed" through a message displayed to the user in post install. Please see bug #113123 if you would like to see more information about the bug.
Make comments about any GTK+ specific problems on the "Depends on bug" ( made specifically for GTK ).
This is in preparation for eventually stabling gnome 2.12.
package: target keywords
gtk+-2.8.8: alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, ia64, mips, ppc, ppc64, sparc, x86
pango-1.10.2: alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, ia64, mips, ppc, ppc64, sparc, x86
cairo-1.0.2: alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, ia64, mips, ppc, ppc64, ppc macos, s390, sh, sparc, x86
glib-2.8.4: alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, ia64, mips, ppc, ppc64, ppc macos, s390, sh, sparc, x86
glib-2.8.4: ppc-macos stable
cairo: not stabled as there exists no ppc-macos stable version
stable on ppc64
amd64 done... i marked stable glitz-0.4.4 to satisfy cairo dependency
I stabled pango, cairo and glib on alpha. However gtk+'s tests fail:

Is that expected to fail ?
just to add a note, spoke to ferdy and told him that it passes the tests for me ( on x86 ).
Please see bug #117916 which is related to this (oregano needs old cairo).
*** Bug 112951 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
With respect to comment #5:
I tested some GTK+ applications (including gaim, evolution, gnumeric and abiword) and gtk-demo, and everything seems to work. However, I still get those errors on tests.
I stabled everything you asked for but gtk+-2.8.8. I'm hereby requesting advise from the Gnome Herd. I'm GTK+ clueless.
gtk failing `make test` is something the GNOME team has ignored for a while ... see bugs 84078 and 83915
i'll go ahead and file a fresh one
Stable on alpha now.
Thanks SpanKY for filing that bug.
hppa done some time ago.
mips should be ahead on all of these now
old and done, marking as fixed
