Or don't even create a library if you don't need one. Just link your
tests to only the sources that the tests need to use. This works out
neatly when you can manage to keep some of your source code separate
from any UI or use of GTK+. To create unit tests the various parts of
your source code need to be loosely coupled anyway.
