Description of problem:
Trying to use pygtk2 in a multithreaded python program dont work.


Python 2.2.1 (#1, Aug 30 2002, 12:15:30)
[GCC 3.2 20020822 (Red Hat Linux Rawhide 3.2-4)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import gtk
>>> gtk.threads_init()
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
RuntimeError: pygtk threading disabled at compile time

The effect of this is that _all_ other threads will freeze when 
gtk.mainloop() is run.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start python 
2. import threads/threadings and gtk
3. Start a new thread using either the threads or threading modules
4. Start gtk.mainloop()

Actual Results:  The initial threads will freeze

Expected Results:  All the threads should coexist peacefully

I've been running pygtk2 rebuilt with threads for the past five months and had
no problems.
