It probably is.  Nothing I have installed uses GTK1.  Actually, this 
includes Vim since I have it using Athena widgets.  :)

BTW, I just noticed by chance that Vim compiled with Athena widgets for 
the GUI has no dependency on libXaw.  This is all the dependencies on my 
Vim install with a working gvim:

Dependency: python26-2.6.6
Dependency: cscope-15.7a
Dependency: libiconv-1.13.1_1
