Ok, that was not accurate. Many other system libraries are pulled in
by libgtk2.0-dev.
However in a distro package system level it is the only requirement.
Adding dependency for X brings another problem: Lazarus would not work with
Wayland display server.
Now it works if the widgetset supports Wayland. Major widgetsets like GTK3
and QT5 do support it. Not sure about GTK2.
