Quite a number of them seems just be indirect dependencies, except perhaps

In the openSUSE buildservice I have for Fedora:

audiofile cups-devel fontforge freeglut-devel libpng-devel libtiff-devel
libxslt-devel prelink libgphoto2 libxml2-devel pkgconfig libjpeg-devel
audiofile-devel bison flex ncurses-devel openssl-devel openldap-devel
libicu-devel lcms-devel freetype-devel isdn4k-utils-devel alsa-lib-devel
hal-devel libX11-devel libXext-devel imake xorg-x11-utils libXt-devel
libXrandr-devel libXrender-devel libXinerama-devel libXi-devel
fontconfig-devel libXcomposite-devel libXcursor-devel libXxf86vm-devel
xorg-x11-proto-devel xorg-x11-xtrans-devel

But even these might be too many ;)

Ciao, Marcus
