This would mean that shared-mime-info and desktop-file-utils should be
added as dependency to the glib2 package, because the generated cache files
are used by its gio library:

For gtk-update-icon-cache, I think it's fine to add it as dependency only
to gtk2 and gtk3, if the icon cache files are generated/removed, when
gtk-update-icon-cache package is installed/removed.
