If you look for a GUI with minimum system dependencies, maximum portability
among unices I think you should  consider FLTK. Sure it has more than 500
lines but it is still slim in comparsion to others. At least in the 1.1.X
versions, coding is done in such a wa that you link only what you need.
May be you even could strip down the source to what you need.
