I would say that if there aren't any advantages of the GTK3 build (and in
contrary, there seem to be some issues), it's better to stick with GTK2.

Similarly I'll make GTK2 binaries for the macOS version for the upcoming
release too. There are still bugs in GTK3 which make the resulting binary
annoying to use (Scintilla scrollbars not updated correctly, menus
selectable by mouse only when entered from the bottom - not when the mouse
enters the menu from the top).
