Yes, this can be done. There is some more work to do on this package.
It could be done either by making it conflict gnome-system-tools so you only
one installed since they do more or less the same thing. Or simply ass and
OnlyShowIn:XFCE; entry to their desktop files in /usr/share/applications.

that's not going to happen as the some of the gnome system tools use the
gnome vfs and nautilus
for some tasks so they need gnome.

One way or another this will be fixed by release.
