I've seen that Pmw has been suggested. Another collection of Megawidgets is Tix < http://tix.sourceforge.net >.
If you want to use Tix, there's even a gui builder available at < http://page.sourceforge.net >; it's surely 
a matter of personal flavor, but I prefer Tix to Pmw, however if you are using MSWindows i've heard that
some people had problems getting it installed (for me it worked without problems).
