I can't test on 10.6, but I tried a related experiment on 10.4.11.

cd /Library/Frameworks/GTK+.framework
tar cvfz ~/la.tgz `find . -name "*.la"`
sudo find . -name "*.la" | xargs rm

Then I went to the gretl source and did

./configure <options>
make clean

This worked OK. (The "make clean" step was required, to flush out
references to the GTK+ .la files.)
