Depending on gdk or pango is not the problem. What is problematic is
that zvt and vte depend on the x11 target of gdk and the Xft library
bindings of pango. I am not very familiar with gtk/gdk/pango, but I
thought it was a desirable goal to be able to use gtk applications for
every target supported by gdk.

I just wanted to know if you broke this target-independancy because
you needed these low-level access to library functions or you were not
aware of it...

However, if now zvt and vte won't wotk for me, do you know another
terminal emulator, which does not need X11 functions?
