I haven't done any programming using gtk. Is it an X-toolkit, i.e.
is it a c-API? Or is it a seperate (scripting) language? I'd suggest
a scripting language like Tcl/Tk or perl/tk. It's faster to develop,
easier to maintain, easier to interface with existing programs
and speed is not an issue when installing. You also might want to have
a look at what others like FreeBSD or RedHat have done.

Just MHO,
