Well, it sounds like a typical Microsoft standard, standard for them only.

To clear up any debate, we're using wxWidgets, which builds using GTK+ 2 on Linux. With most builds, I think the general plan was to build a fully static binary, so that no dependencies were needed, but in the case of Linux I understand we'll have to provide a linked version against GTK+.

The LSB seems to be one of those certifications that everyone goes for, sounds impressive but no-one actually knows what it means.

For us, we can just ensure that the wxWidgets makefile can find the GTK libraries (I'm sure this is covered in a book I've got - about GTK programming)

Yah, I came to the same conclusion after doing some more reading.  It seems to me that while the LSB specifies a standard, its real goal is to drive or bring awareness to linux standardization.  That is, by making a bold claim that Qt and GTK should be the standard, they get a whole bunch of people thinking about what should be a standard.
