Okay, that's probably the culprit then. I don't know what 'freerock
Gnome' is, but if they're giving you precompiled stuff, then they
probably have differing gcc versions than you. You might want to
mention this bug to them.

No special parameters. I assume you can get the source via the websites
for those projects. E.g. http://www.gtk.org, etc.

Don't know if it's on Knoppix or Ubuntu's live CD, but it's certainly
available through those distros.
We also provide an autopackage version of Inkscape you might try; it
bundles all the libs together which can help in avoiding the library
