Figured that out!

On Linux... what's the native API for a windowing toolkit? If
you refer to Gtk, I think it will just work.

Sorry, suddenly Gtk dependencies on Windows started to look not
so bad. :p Really I would have ported it if it wasn't for GtkD.

That's right and I tried that, but I don't have a 32-bit
version of libgnomeui installed. These .so files often come in
larger 32-bit compatibility package bundles. Looks like it
wasn't important enough to make it in.
