Packages should depend on libgnome-keyring not gnome-keyring

In 2009 libgnome-keyring client library was split out of the
gnome-keyring module (where gnome-keyring-daemon lives).

In theory libgnome-keyring can talk with multiple daemons via the Secret
Service DBus API [1] and isn't tightly bound to gnome-keyring.

This is just a reminder that packages using gnome_keyring_* functions,
should ideally depend on libgnome-keyring and not gnome-keyring. It's
rare that a package should depend directly on gnome-keyring.

As an example, here are several bugs/patches to fix packages depending
on gnome-keyring incorrectly in Fedora:
