Why not? The best example is VIM, it has so many options what to build
with GUI such as GTK, GTK2, Motif and etc. I find the USE_*, WITH_* and
etc are very useful. Also, take the look at a lot of GTK2 apps, if you
don't want it to be build with GNOME options then don't install GNOME2 and
allow apps to be standalone.
