I'm about to undertake a project at work that will involve coding an 
interface which I wanted to be as cross-platform as possible, and I 
stumbled onto a toolkit called wxWindows, which seems to handle the 
GUI aspect of things quite nicely, and works for Motif, some of the 
older toolkits that sit on top of X, Windows, with the new version 
supporting GTK (there's also a Mac version floating around).  I've 
not used it, but I've been sitting on the mailing list for a while, 
and from what I've read it seems a nice tool (and, it's open-source).

Might make porting a little bit easier.
