You have 2.8... 2.10 is required.

No need to install it with yum, jhbuild builds it for you. Looking at 
your previous mail I think it didn't build because of 
libtiff-devel/libpng-devel missing. If you install these packages and 
redo the build goocanvas should build fine too.

In general skipping packages is a bad idea, unless you know what you are 
doing. Better stop at the first failure and try to solve it.
