actually, libctk is more like libgtk.  it has much the same interface
as gtk (ie ctk_box_pack_start instead of gtk_box_pack_start), except
that it draws on the console.  it doesn't have gDk equivalence, since
it used SLang for the actual drawing...but now it's switched over to
libarr for drawing.  The idea of ctk was to make it really easy for
some who has used Gtk to switch over and make a nice console app with
buttons and such.  there's the added advantage that you can use things
like glade to make a console interface :)
