Description of problem:
KDE packages should use the --enable-new-ldflags ./configure option. This triggers the using of --enable-new-dtags and the --as-needed flag in the linker, which should filter out indirectly linked libraries from the NEEDED section of the ELF headers. The result is: much less dependencies in the packages. E.g the kdeadmin module really should not depend on libart_lgpl and there are many more examples.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Query the dependencies of a KDE package
2. It's much more than it should be
it's fixed in rawhide. Thanks for your report.
