libgda based on glib 2.0 will also have those dependencies, of course without
gtk, but the other ones will still be required. And, if I get a bit far
with the libgda-bonobo (libgda based on libbonobo2), another dependency
would be added :-) (don't know yet if the port to libbonobo will ever
happen, I'm just experimenting in the libgda-bonobo CVS module, if you
want to take a look)

Maybe GConf might be dropped from the list, to allow for simple plain
text config files, but I'm not sure yet whether this would be good or
bad. Any opinion on this?

But ORBit, OAF and libxml will continue to be required. xml-i18n-tools
is not a problem, since this is just a compile-time dependency. Once you
make the tarballs, people don't need to have xml-i18n-tools installed,
since all files are added to the tarball.
