GTK installing from Slackware current

I just set up a system installing from Slackware currrent. Its always worked flawlessly in the past but this time I'm getting " error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" on starting Firefox and several other programs in the install.

Is this still missing from the removal of Gnome? Can anybody tell me what package I need to install to solve this problem?

Ah, thanks, it appears that there was a glitch somewhere in my install. I did a full install and all of those packages are in the right directory but for some reason only gtk+-1.2.10-i386-3 was installed.
