installation for the required libraries for this on both ubuntu 12.04
and debian 6.0.4 is pretty trivial, but the map widget shows nothing
(white screen) on said debian distribution.
this could be due to the outdated GTK it is using - 2.20.1-2.

native installation on windows is a mess, but that's pretty normal and
the widget works. i had to hunt for some of the DLLs such as
also, it requires the oddly named z.dll (which is pretty much zlib).
things are probably smoother when cross-compiling.

i was wondering, what are the points against invoking googlemaps in a
browser window, not that i insist on that as a replacement?
