Hi !

I have ported a big part of gtk+  to MacOS 9, it's on mac-gtk at
IT'S ALIVE ! ;-)
The GDK port is based on QuickDraw+WindowMgr, and Justin Armstrong has made
changes for carbon support.
Of course, on MacOS X, he uses a standard unix glib (I must use the GUSI
posix emulation on the classic MacOS which is not easy for the process

AND... I have a minimal version of Gimp running on MacOS 9 !
There are still a lot of bugs but at least I can paint some flowers with the
brush tool...

Currently I don't have much time for GTK because I am on holidays (far away
from my G4) so you should contact Justin for the MacOS X port.
