You have to set up an event callback for the GnomeCanvasItem, and check
for the GDK_BUTTON_PRESS and GDK_BUTTON_RELEASE events to grab and
release the item (with gnome_canvas_item_grab() and
gnome_canvas_item_ungrab() respectively).  Also, you'll want to update
the position of the item as the cursor moves around, so you should also
intercept the GDK_MOTION_NOTIFY event.

This isn't true drag-and-drop, per se, but it does an excellent job of
faking it.  In a nutshell, you mimic the motions of the cursor for the
duration of the drag, creating the _illusion_ of drag-and-drop.

Havoc Pennington's book has a snippet of code to demonstrate this:
