No, not this way.
What will happen when somebody has libgtkhtml built w/o gnome support
and a gnome package needs libgtkhtml w/ gnome? Build "mysteriously"
broken, because you can't differentiate between both. Not to say that
binary-only users won't have a choice.
If that needs to be done, a separate package must be created (say
libgtkhtml-nognome) or something similar.
