So php-gtk is orphan and can't be compiled (try, if you want, and change 
dependencies is not better).
I've tried to write a PKGBUILD for, but when 'make' start, I've a lot of 
"unknown type name"‘function_entry" and make exit with a non-zero 
status. Even if somebody adopts it and rewrites PKGBUILD, 'make' will fail.
Rewritten PKGBUILD is here : http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=QKRXp83A
Skip file php-gtk.ini, and try 'makepkg -s'.

Project is inactive (http://gtk.php.net/download.php -> last release 
v2.0.1, 15-May-2008), package php-gtk is strictly useless in AUR.

That is my final word : please merge php-gtk into php-gtk-git. Nobody 
will adopt php-gtk... It's the only solution to remove obsolete package 
in AUR and make AUR more cleaner.

I am not interested by php-gtk (and also php-gtk-git), my request is 
only for AUR interest.
