Good point.  libgsf is a rare case where a GConf schema is installed but 
the package itself doesn't actually use GConf.  I've fixed this in SVN 
(r8493, r8494).

Correct, those are the only dependencies of libgsf1_114. 
libgdk_pixbuf2.0 is only used by (one of) the utilities, and the python 
deps are obviously only for the python-gsf bindings.  librsvg2 also 
depends on libgdk_pixbuf2.0 but NOT libgtk2.0; that's precisely why I 
split out libgdk_pixbuf2.0 from libgtk2.0, even though upstream ships 
them together.
