As my preferred GUI is 'fvwm', it's even further away from gtkX+ and that's
the way I like it (except when gtkX+ applications do weird things).

I've also discovered that while one can disable the "gtk3" option for
"net/wireshark", it then fails packaging with:

=> Automatic manual page handling
pkg_create: can't stat `/d0/build/pkgsrc/net/wireshark/work/.destdir/usr/pkg/lib/'
=> Creating binary package /d0/build/pkgsrc/net/wireshark/work/.packages/wireshark-2.2.5.tgz
pkg_create: can't stat `/d0/build/pkgsrc/net/wireshark/work/.destdir/usr/pkg/lib/'
pkg_create: lstat failed for file lib/ No such file or directory

Perhaps firefox in pkgsrc-HEAD should drop gtk2/gtk3 option altogether
(gtk3+ is strictly required).

Likewise, wireshark should complain if none of its GUI toolkit options
(gtk3, qt5) are enabled.

These have so far been the only two packages from my usual complement
which have given me any trouble.

(Then there is PR pkg/51266, but that's another matter.)
