It looks like you are trying to build the 1.08.002 version with GTK3.

There is indeed a bug in this version when using this library. It was fixed a little later. The current git head should build fine, or you could wait for the 1.08.003 version, to be released in a few days or use the 1.08.002 patched with these commits:

Note that gnubg's GTK3 version is still a bit rough and if OpenBSD didn't drop GTK2 it may be more sensible to use this version of the toolkit.

I'm trying to update the OpenBSD package of gnubg.

I'm faced with:

gtkrelational.c:505:58: error: use of undeclared identifier 'pwDialog'
    window = GTKCreateDialog(_("History plot"), DT_INFO, pwDialog, DIALOG_FLAG_MINMAXBUTTONS, NULL, NULL);

Looking at the source, I think I agree with the compiler. There is no `pwDialog` in scope that I can see. What am I missing here?

(this bit of code has since changed in git, so maybe it was already fixed?)
