It might be possible to get rid of this output by putting the
"-Wl,--as-needed" compiler flag in the upstream configure script. But
honestly this happens with most GTK programs. The libgtk-x11-2.0.so
library is setup to bring in most of its own dependencies every time a
program uses it. Even when that program doesn't need to call pango,
cairo or any of that. I would just ignore it.
