If you an to use the pygtk 2.10 binaries, you'll have to download GTK+
2.10. As far as I know, there are currently two sources for GTK+ 2.10
win32 binaries:

The official GTK+ ftp site : ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/v2.10/win32
Cody Russell's site : http://www.gnome.org/~bratsche/win32/

I built my own cairo-1.2 binaries but you can probably find those
files elsewhere by googling around.

Ivan Wong did promise me an updated gladewin32 installer for GTK+ 2.10
a few weeks ago but unfortunately nothing has been uploaded on the
gladewin32 site yet...
