Because GTK+ uses GNU autoconf/automake/libtool, it should be portable to
any platform known to autoconf/automake/libtool.

Xmu/WinUtil.h is in the default X11 distribution. I have access to a hpux
10.10 box, and it looks like the sysadmin made a default X11R5 setup in
/usr/local, although a HPUX version is still available in /usr/X11R5. I
think this is done because the HPUX setup was considered broken.

It is possible that your system doesn't have the headers, because
commercial Unix vendors tend to package development headers and libraries
on a different CDROM for which you have to pay lots of $$$. (This is where
Unix went wrong, IMHO ;-).

My experience with GTK+ is that as long as you use gcc, you won't have
many problems porting it. I had no problems porting it to SGI IRIX 6.3
when I used gcc 2.8.1, but with SGI MipsPRO cc there were some problems.
