My fractured grammar probably didn't help make clear that I consider 
either of these alternatives valid.

 From what you write, it seems you really intended to omit gtk support, 
so I'd suggest you consider alternative (i) i.e. explicitly configure 
--without-gtk, and potentially revisit this when someone demonstrates a 
need for mtr with gtk.

I guess you could add a mtr-gtk subpackage, to contain a mtr built with 
gtk support.

Unfortunately cygport can't create subpackages with conflicting files, 
and we can't mark packages as conflicting (yet), so you'd need to rename 
the mtr executable in that subpackage (e.g. as mtr-gtk)
