GPE is a set of applications for mobile devices running X11 and Gtk+.
Opie is a set of applications for mobile devices running Qt/Embedded
2.x. Both are more or less dead.

FSO is a set of dbus-based services dedicated for mobile devices. It is
actively maintained.

ASU is the codename for the Openmoko distribution that shipped in August
2008. It is no longer maintained.

As for the relationship question... they're pretty much orthogonal.

Hope that helps,
