gtk is the main bottleneck for loading the gtk ui. it became an
unpleasant thing to build a couple of years ago, with the longest
circular dependancy chain i've personally run into.

i also hear new gtk depends on dbus, although if dependancies are the
only thing you're worried that may not be a problem. you'll only need
expat and pkgconfig on top of all gtk needs. >_>
