Yes, this is indeed an important requirement.

I think that neither GTK nor GhostScript depend on X per se. For
example, Debian installer uses GTK to provide multilingual user
interface from the very early stages of installation. I don't know if
the printing functionality of GTK actually requires X.

Thanks for your effort,
