Yes. But what does gnucash need from gnome-core? IMHO, that part should
be splitted of gnome-core into a more fine-grained package so that gnucash
could depend on it rather on gnome-core. I feel that gnome-core should
just be a meta package depending on many other gnome-* parts (all of them
coming from the gnome-core distfile, but splitted by us). This has already
been done for gnome1-panel and gnome1-session, for example.
