Hm. I did a quick check:

fsb: >ldd /usr/lib/libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0 | wc -l
fsb: >ldd /usr/lib/libqt-mt.so.3.3.8 | wc -l

So Qt needs 31 libs, GTK uses 44. Many of the extra ones related to direct framebuffer
access, which is total nonsense in a X environment.

Well, this reminds me why I use KDE and not Gnome.

How complete/stable is the Qt version of the LCL, and what version of Qt is needed ?
