I like Gtk. It most likely has bindings for whatever language you want to code in. I've never used Qt (which is what KDE uses), but only the Linux version of Qt is free. If lightweightness is the highest priority, you might consider using Tcl/Tk. I believe Tom has some choice words on coding in Tcl/Tk, though.
