Well gtk is a depends for imlib wich is required by fvwm, the WM I use.
Unless imlib can work without gtk, I give a big -1 to removing glib/gtk
from the repo.

Beside the fact that they are old, is there any reason to remove them from
the repo? I maintain these threee packages and they are working well (no
bug assigned).  I don't see why they should be removed especially since
many apps still depends on them.
