GNOME dependencies

Hi all,
       I do not know about GNOME dependencies & whether that is a big
issue or not. What I would suggest is the following :-

1. Give an e.g. of an app. using some testing methodology let's say
using Valgrind [1] or some other tool & giving specific examples if &
how cpu cycles & memory allocation is minimized.

 For e.g. I tried to see if Celestia (A real-time visual space
simulation) and ran an aptitude search on it and came up with the
following ones :-

shirish at Mugglewille:~$ aptitude search celestia
p   celestia                                        - A real-time
visual space simulation (KDE frontend)
p   celestia-common                                 - Datafiles for
Celestia, a real-time visual space simulati
p   celestia-dbgsym                                 - debug symbols
for package celestia
p   celestia-glut                                   - A real-time
visual space simulation (GLUT frontend)
p   celestia-glut-dbgsym                            - debug symbols
for package celestia-glut
p   celestia-gnome                                  - A real-time
visual space simulation (Gnome frontend)
p   celestia-gnome-dbgsym                           - debug symbols
for package celestia-gnome


Of course I'm no developer, just a casual user who would like to try
out stuff. I would be interested if we can have some stuff at lower
memory requirements as I have an aging comp. (Intel P4 1.8 Ghz - 512
MB DDR RAM) not too lame but still lame enough :(

Lemme know what you guys think about it or if anybody has done stuff
like this with any of the apps. and any results.
