why "dwt-linux" instead of "dwt-gtk" ?

I see, just my ignorance about available SWT versions then. :-)
And if you do decide to support 64-bit, that could probably fit
within the existing projects (even if needing different binaries)
While FreeBSD can run the Linux binaries, it doesn't help the Mac.
Then again the GTK+ port does look a bit "alien" on it anyway...
