It's not a program, it's a library.  It provides a cross-platform API to
access kernel and process statistics.  Different platforms (eg. Linux and
Solaris) have very very different ways of getting such information.
LibGTop ties them all together so you can write cross-platform system
programs (eg. GTop).  

Some GNOME programs, such as GTop and certain applets in gnome-core,
require this library be present.
