The usual solution for this is simply to install the appropriate headers.  
They are usually in a package libxtst-dev or something similar if you're 
using a GNU/Linux distribution.  However, I don't know if this are available 
on the arm platform you're working on, so the better solution might be to 
disable the Gtk+ peers, at least for a first go.

Hope that helps,
Andy :)
