I don't see why this should be inevitable.  I'd expect the
distributors of GNU/Linux systems (RH, Debian, Suse, etc.) to provide
packages built with several (perhaps even all) supported toolkits,
including GTK+, even if it's not the default.  At least, that's what I
would do if I were the individual responsible for packaging Emacs.

IOW, the GNU project does not provide binaries for GNU/Linux
distributions, so how those binaries are configured and built is not
up to us.
