Summary0011788: GTK 2 is unmaintained and deprecated, but Dwarf Fortress is still using it
DescriptionGTK 2 is no longer maintained. No new bugfix releases are made and its use is generally discouraged.

Dwarf Fortress is still using GTK 2 on Linux (or at it links to it). This isn't a problem for the moment, but it might become a problem in the future. Linux Distributions such as Debian are making early preparations to remove GTK2: [^]

So while it is not urgent, I am opening this issue to give a heads up, that there will be a time when GTK2 will not be available on the majority of machines and Dwarf Fortress will probably have to switch to a newer version sooner or later.
Steps To Reproduce$ ldd Dwarf_Fortress | grep gtk => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007f955cb15000)
