It seems that wmconfig as it currently is (v0.9.6-1),
is depending on GNOME.
I find this realy wrong because:
- wmconfig was supposed to be a windowmager cfg parser.
- you are not able to use it without GNOME.
  it has build-in dependancies to gnome libs.
- I don't want to use GNOME but fvwmXXX instead,
  because of these dependancies one is not able to install
  this utility wich makes it unusable to anybody without

The binary wmconfig is linked with gnome libraries, hence the
dependency on the gnome packages that provide the libraries. The
binary won't execute w/o the dependency being satisfied.
