Based on firefox's inability to get rid of gtk2 from its default
build, I will guess that thunderbird too probably needs it.

Thunderbird is not something I use, but those messages seem
conclusive.  I'll add it in while I wait to see if rust is going to
crash my system again.

In my seventh decade astride this planet, and as my own cells degrade,
there are some things I cannot do now: skydiving, marathon running,
calculus. I couldn't do them in my 20s either, so no big loss.
