Requires Qt, eventhough the Arts homepage says otherwise

Description of problem:
Arts, which is needed by a lot of things, requires on file found in the Qt package.
While it may be a good idea to have the whole Qt package for most, there is no need for the extra files required if Qt itself isn't required.
Arts is supposed to be completly useable without Qt according to the Arts homepage, so why it is depending on Qt is a mystery to me. The standalone artsd has been available since 2001, so this is something that should have been fixed a long time ago.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install anything that requires arts (and thus install arts)
Actual Results: You are forced to install qt
Expected Results: I expect qt to have nothing to do with arts, since arts can easily be made standalone and independt of qt.
The above url is the place where the standalone statment is made. Also a download link is available.
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Since I can't find arts to be alive, I'm closing it. I'm marking it as NOTABUG
due to lack of better tags.
