Either download and compile libgtk-1.2 or update and recompile the game (don't think this is a real possibility, but in theory it works.) You can google for instructions on how to compile it.

Alternativeley you can install it from this PPA

There are a couple of PPAs that still have libgtk1.2 available. This one seems popular.

The enemy-territory package which is available from does not depend on libgtk1.2 .
