Sorry, for my, probably, stupid qustion, but...

Why somebody would be like to have GTK+/GST under Wine? I don't find the

Two reasons:

1) It is just how I tested the Windows port, since I do not have a Windows PC. I'm not saying "it works on Windows" until it's tested. It's not optimal, but it enabled huge leaps and I'll be able to distribute packages that (hopefully) will work on Windows.

2) Cross-compilation. With Gwenael's work Tcl/Tk will not be needed anymore and Fedora provides packages for all other dependencies of GNU Smalltalk. So, this will first of all enable the aforementioned binary packages. With some experimentation, it will allow other people to compile GNU Smalltalk without the extremely long configure/make times of MSYS and Cygwin.
