Is this actually true?

When I last looked, I thought that the gtk support in openmcl was Gtk 
1.X and PPC Linux only.  It never actually ran for Gtk 2.X or for any 
flavor of OS X.

If this is not the case, please feel free to correct my misconceptions.

I am interested.  Is the code in CVS?  If so, I can just check it out.  
Otherwise, a pointer would be helpful.

Nonetheless, the Gtk example code is useful to anyone trying to access 
an external library which has not been wrapped.
