Only xdg-utils should be replaced with gtk-update-icon-cache when it's used
by the install script to run 'xdg-icon-resource forceupdate'.

I recommend to add gtk-update-icon-cache as dependency to
hicolor-icon-theme, since if a package uses the hicolor theme hierarchy,
then it should update its icon cache too.
