The answer is the same as it's always been, the AGTk is built using GT2.4.3,
except on windows it uses our customs GT2.0/2.2 port.

When did that get confused?

We have no control over the globus web pages or distribution model. GT 2.4.3
got buried in their latest release and we've had a difficult time trying to
find it ourselves, at times. If someone wants to write up instructions to
help the people doing ports we'd be happy to get them on the web pages, but
come on, I might be only on my first cup of coffee, but this sounds really
crabby at the AG team when we're just users of the globus toolkit, we can't
fix what that group does...

I'll get more coffee and see if I my interpretation gets better ;)
