How many different platforms have you used it on?

Surely it's not a matter of knowing that there are problems but not knowing
there aren't.  I, and perhaps many other users of Emacs in CVS. just compile
with the default toolkit and so haven't tested the GTK port at all.  Would it
not be better to make --with-gtk the default immediately _after_ the release so
it gets a thorough testing first?
