Description of problem:
I don't think gaim needs to require gnome-desktop. I think this is a hold over
from the Gnome1 days. Only gaim and ethereal-gnome are the only standalone
applications that have this requirement. If it is a valid requirement because of
the placement of icons or something I suggest the icons be moved into gaim and
the dependecy removed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e --nodeps gnome-desktop
2. rpm -i gaim


Actual Results:  gaim requires gnome-desktop

Expected Results:  gaim to install

The require seems to be gone from what I can see in the output of
rpm -q --requires gaim
