The idea of depending on old versions of external dependencies is to
ensure that GNOME builds on common versions of distros, which might not
have the newer versions. 

As soon as we know that a newer version of a dependency is available on
fairly recent versions of all the common distros, that would be a time
to increase it's version in our list so we get testing with that new
common version. That's the question that needs to be answered about all
these versions.

It's also desirable to test newer versions, but we don't want everyone
to be testing/building with a system that is unlike the real world, so
that's a difficult thing to do.
