You are right of course.  The default build of GNU Emacs will now prefer
GTK+ whenever possible.  I am not really experienced with the default
installation of the major GNU/Linux distributions (I only found out last
night that the default "base system" in Ubuntu does not include all the
necessary bits to compile programs, and one has to install a set of -dev
packages, for example).

Thanks for the clarification :-)
