This would be a nice addition.

In Fedora, only the wxWidgets GUI is built:

But that means that mkvtoolnix-gui is actually missing in Fedora.  While
it is somewhat unusual for a single package to provide a mix of GTK+ and
Qt GUIs, these are separate programs and the set would seemingly be
incomplete without both.  (FWIW it's also unusual to use Rake in a
project which doesn't use Ruby.)

I think this can be GTG as is, once the dependencies are updated for the
libpugixml1 naming.
