This makes sense, however I recently tried some GUI programs on Linux
and here's a sample of issues:

 - mail/sylpheed fails to load some things, including a font (it
   appears), then segfaults:

   Gtk-Message: 22:42:54.634: Failed to load module "atk-bridge"
   Gtk-Message: 22:42:54.634: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"
   (sylpheed:2055614): Pango-CRITICAL **: 22:42:54.804: pango_font_describe: assertion 'font != NULL' failed
   (sylpheed:2055614): Pango-CRITICAL **: 22:42:54.804: pango_font_description_get_variant: assertion 'desc != NULL' failed
   (sylpheed:2055614): Pango-CRITICAL **: 22:42:54.804: pango_font_get_hb_font: assertion 'PANGO_IS_FONT (font)' failed
   Segmentation fault

 - emulators/sameboy sometimes has audio, sometimes it doesn't.
   Sometimes it prints:

   ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1032:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave

 - emulators/mgba, with mgba-qt, doesn't render text:

Fonts and audio appear to be recurring issues. In the past I've had GTK
theming issues too.

Perhaps it's user error, and I need to do some font configuration and
document it (if it isn't already), but it would be even better if it
can be made to work out of the box. If I can't get it to work I'll open
some PRs.
