libglib2.0_0 is the only "GNOME library" in that list.

You think that's bad, but I didn't enable the libproxy KDE4 backend for

DBus and GLib are pretty much standard these days, since most low-level

its main loop these days.  Only because we don't need these services on
Cygwin are they not part of the base installation.
