Initially there was no defined for gdk symbols in the fpc package but 
there was for gtk. I followed that rule (since it is not mine package) 
and added defines only for gtk. But as we considered before (some 
lazarus and fp devels) minimal fpc/lazarus gtk/gdk requirement is 2.6 
version. So there was no need for that conditions even in gtk bindings 
(thats why Ales has been surprised thought they can not harm). And as I 
understand if symbol is not used in the program it will not be included 
in the resulting executable. So in theory we can include even the most 
recent gtk/gdk symbols without any harm to applications. But in order to 
protect devels from ocasional usage of symbols from higher versions 
(2.8+) Ales creates gtkext package.

Best regards,
