openSUSE offers emacs-nox, emacs-x11 and emacs-gtk binaries and subpackages;
emacs-x11 is built with Athena Widgets IIRC and does so precisely to avoid
forcing the many dbus/Gtk dependencies onto systems that have no use for it
otherwise.  I've been trying to keep a "lean" X11 alternative for my Cygwin
installation here that does not pull in all that desktop infrastructure, but it
seems I'm losing that battle anyway (both on the Gnome and the KDE/Qt front).
