   I only suppose they developed it mainly using GNU/Linux.

And GNU/Hurd is mostly developed on GNU/Linux.  And alot of GNU
software was developed on non-free platforms back in the days...  :-)

   It's probably possible, but you'll have to link against MBs of

How is this different from any other program?  Lets see, ext2fs needs
the following:

It isn't like you load one seperate copy of each library for every
program that is running.

   And linking against libbonobo is only useful for a GNOME program.

If libbonobo provides features that can be used by a non-GNOME
program, then this isn't true.  But I don't know exactly what
libbonobo does so...
