I think we have to distinguish here between the dependencies that gda has
and the dependencies a program using gda will have.
GDA_CLIENT_CFLAGS are the dependencies gda itself has. That does not
mean that every program that uses the gda library must have the same include
Actually, for compiling a program using libgda the output of gda-config --cflags
should be sufficient. (With this I don't mean that you should change gda-config
to include all that additional libraries)

See the example XML: surely libgda-client itself needs gnome-xml; but maybe
it would be possible to design the gda-client.h in a way that programs using
libgda-client don't depend on gnome-xml.h and therefore don't require the
development package for gnome-xml installed to compile.

I'm not sure if I have explained that clearly. If you have problems understanding
what I want, we can as well go on discussing off-list or in irc.

I am afraid not.
