FLTK 2 is permanently discontinued as far as I know, so I also would
recommend removing it.

Also fine by me. I'm in fact happy to remove all GUIs except SDL, GTK,
FB, and KDE4 since I don't believe the others are used, and each GUI
increases the maintenance burden considerably. I only care about SDL
because I haven't got anything else working under w32; otherwise it's
not a particularly wonderful GUI.


Use Gnash, the GNU Flash Player!
