I'd like to disable GTK/SDL from qemu build. Any objections?

Will there be a GUI included with qemu by default?
While in the past I've written a wrapper to use a VNC client with qemu,
it's nice to be able to just run qemu ... and have a working framebuffer.

Alternately, is there some wrapper that is equivalent to that?

(I haven't used qemu much on Alpine, though.)

Thanks,
Isaac Dunham

no. that is the question at hand.

exactly. I actually do that once in a while. I find the GTK interface
pretty nice.

Not that I am aware of.

Ideally, the gui should be implemented modular, as a plugin, but when
asking the devs, it will not happen til after SDL2 is fixed.

So for now, we can find/use some wrapper, or have a secondary
package built with --enable-gtk - but that will only be done for x86
and x86_64 not for all 27 archs.
