To use GTK-2 you need to download some stuff from the GNOME CVS repository. I recomment you start with checking out the 'vicious-build-scripts' module. This one contains some explanation and easy to use scripts for checking out and building the libraries. (don't worry, everything is installed on a separate place and everything you have will continue working).
Use the scripts as described in the documentation with vicous-build-scripts and everything will work pretty well. Of course you can run into some bugs. To build DiaCanvas2 you need at least those modules:
I use the FreeType renderer of Pango, so you need some .ttf files on your system and have the etc/pango/pangorc file contain something like this:
FontPath = /usr/share/fonts/truetype
