This has potential to be a FAQ, so I'm responding on xemacs-beta (and
will add something to the release page, too).

The short, not very responsive, answer is, "Yes, if you build and
install it." That is, as far as I know, GTK can be built and used on
any *nix flavor that supports X11R6. I don't know how well it works
and is supported on Solaris, HPUX, AIX, etc, though.
The real answer is that when I wrote
o Integration of GTK XEmacs with the main line.
I really meant
o Integration of support for GTK with the main line.
Ie, there will be a --with-gtk configuration option that works the
same way as --with-dialogs=motif or --with-widgets=athena.
The present plan is to default to --with-gtk=no for the release on
_all_ platforms, including Linux. This probably implies the same
default for the prereleases.
People who have no need or desire for GTK at this time can ignore it,
except that some of the changes made for GTK may impact other
platforms either because it makes sense to unify the code, or
inadvertantly (eg, a misplaced #ifdef HAVE_GTK). Wringing out such
bugs is one of the purposes of the test period.
