I think it should be clear, although the thread is a little chaotic... 
It'd be better to build both GTK+2 and GTK+3. At the present time, there 
are applications still needing the former, while others need the latter.
Coming back to your firs post on the subject, I do not understand what 
you mean with "and then there's the accompanying glib". One glib fits 
all. Anyway, if you are only interested in FF, just FBBG: if you use the 
provided mozconfig file with no modification, FF will look for GTK+2, 
and you do not need GTK+3. So, as far as your original post is 
concerned, the answer is: you do not need GTK+3...
