Be careful with Xchat, some versions link to modified static GTK+, and a few
of them install GTK+ to it's own directory.

Problem here is, that there's no standarised installer for GTK+ - Tor only
provides zipfiles, and it's up to the developers how they use these ZIPs.
Hopefully this will change when porting of Evolution to Windows will be

Many installers for Windows GTK+ programs do this, and nobody has a problem
with it. You could also make a ZIP file that includes both installers, and
if the user tries to install Qemu without the GTK+ libraries, the GTK+
installer could be automatically invoked in silent mode (this is what I plan
for the Gimp).
