It probably builds out of box with lesstif (most things do these days),
but a real GNOME port would be neat - it looked awesome when DrMike tried
it yesterday, and it would definitely be a nice alternative to (the sadly
not-yet-there) gwp.

If you're interested in having a go at it, there are at least a couple
people (Miguel, Chris Toshok, me) who have ported Xt & Motif apps to Gtk,
so ask on the list if you have any questions. If you get adventurous,
writing a "Motif -> Gtk porting guide" would be really neat! :)

Sounds cool,

Forget chickens, I want to know whether the assembler or the OS came first.
