Gtk3 portability

Gtk3 portability

Hi, I have made a Linux gtk3 program and have it running on my Debian Mint AMD64 machine.

I mistakenly thought that the program file (binary file) held all that was needed to run.

I moved the program file to a newly installed Mint 18.1 and ran into a few difficulties.

1. I had to install libsdl2 to get over the first hick.

2. My program was looking for libglew.so.1.10 but what was in the repository was 1.13 obviously a slightly later version.

3. I overcame hick 2 by pulling over C++ and gtk3 and recompiling from source.

Maybe you guys and gals can give me a few pointers so that I can generate the program file (binary file) without all the above hassle? Regards Ian.
