Sorry Brandon, couldn't resist this:

[summary:  wants a widget set for cross platform game toolkit]

The SDL is a cross platform GUI toolkit for games, but is weak
on the 'widget' side of things, since game toolkits usually give you 
only the ability to write text on the screen, and some bitmaps, and 
maybe render your 3d polygons.    Basically the widget set you need for
games is a pair of bitmaps which you page flip between, and then 
everything else should be drawing lines, text, and bitmaps on top of a 
3d background screen. Thats how all the recent games I've seen do things.
