If you link a plug-in for REALbasic on Linux with default settings from the SDK sample makefile, you get quite a lot of libraries linked to which you may not need:
gtk-x11-2.0, gdk-x11-2.0, gmodule-2.0, glib-2.0, Xi, Xext, X11 and m
So today I changed it and compile only with the default libraries from gcc and add libraries only if needed to the makefiles. So the plug-in libraries get a little bit smaller and most of my plugins no longer require gtk.
The change is in the 10.2pr9 plug-ins.
