How to install QT&GTK* without GNOME & KDE?

I'm installing debian sarge netinstall.

I want to install Qt & GTK* but without GNOME & KDE (I will use windowmaker or something), and Qt & GTK libraries are needed to run programs, written for them.

In package manager:
I deselect GNOME, package manager also deselects GTK! Why? GTK can't work without GNOME? I don't think so.. Manually selecting GTK packages after GNOME deselected them is not very good idea..

Just install what you need with apt-get. When you'll "apt-get" a program that's depending on gtk or qt, apt will fetch them for you...

Good luck
