I'm not sure Gtk is a good choice for Win 32.  There is a Gtk available on
Win 32, but it doesn't "look right" to me.  I have just completed a Gtk port
of RAPID (our Ada GUI development tool), and I find that the Tcl/Tk port
(using TASH) seems better (especially the menus and file open/save dialogs).

Another possibility might be the JVM using AdaJNI, Cafe, or JGNAT.  It would
probably run unacceptably slowly on older processors, though.

Try gnat Ada 95, gnapse, and gtkada.  All work on both OS's.  Use florist
(POSIX) for all OS system calls and it should port to both systems without
much problem.
