Some news about this one: the libgnome{,ui} dependencies are caused by a
packaging issue (the gnome variant is shipped in both packages) and
should be fixed soon (see the link above for more details).
The libgnome-{keyring,vfs} dependencies aren't a big pain, and since
there is no real equivalent for libgnome-vfs, I think we can keep them.

Cheers,
Lionel
