The ebuild script that compiles and installs keyTouch on Gentoo indicates that it depends on gnome-menus ("The GNOME menu system, implementing the F.D.O cross-desktop spec") at runtime.

As I use KDE, this unfortunately pulls in a lot of GNOME dependencies that I would rather avoid. Would it be possible to implement what keyTouch does with just GTK? (While I prefer QT, I have to use a bunch of GTK applications, so I have the toolkit installed anyway.) If it were, would the change be relatively trivial (if time consuming) or does gnome-menus support some fundamental part of keyTouch?

Or is the ebuild off its rocker and keyTouch does not require gnome-menus to begin with? I looked around a bit and did not find anything that explicitly states that keyTouch has GNOME dependencies.
