There's no reason why a default fallback to the current system

I cannot see how this is more likely to break a release  
systematically. And it's only as intransparent as we make it (e.g.,  
apart from the "compiling", "assembling" and "linking", there could  
just as well be a "Determining needed libraries using gtk-config..."

I do not understand this last part. Are you talking about dynamically  
loading libraries at run time or so?
