From the perspective of a company creating commercial software, the look of Gtk is a bit of a turn-off as it doesn't seem to match the native look well. That judgment is mostly from working with GIMP and a few other Gtk based applications, and not working with the toolkit itself so it may not be a valid one.
Anyway, I do know that Qt is an excellent toolkit across platforms and a Lisp binding would grant one of my lispy wishes

I guess the main reason for absence of a complete Qt binding (and many other large libraries) is the lack of requrement for it. E.g., a single hacker starts the project for its fun, it gets semi-complete and then abandoned because at the time, noone needed it and the hacker's motivation is depleted. On the other, I think that it is possible for one man to create a complete Qt binding in the time of month or two.
For me, Gtk+ looks good, both on windows and linux.But that's just my opinion.
