Or do this as root:

rpm --rebuild glib-1.2.6-1.src.rpm
[... building process ...]
rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/glib-1.2-1.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/glib-devel-1.2-1.i386.rpm

rpm --rebuild gtk+-1.2.6-1.src.rpm
[... building process ...]
rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/gtk+-1.2.6-1.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/gtk+-devel-1.2.6-1.i386.rpm

Then RPM won't complain anymore (it needs to know what packages in which
versions are installed, which have these and those files ...).

   The use of COBOL cripples the mind; its teaching should, therefore, be
   regarded as a criminal offence.                  -- Edsger W. Dijkstra
