which has the intention to install emacs without all the Xlibs.

Now, with libgio being required by emacs, and this requiring dbus-1-x11 in
turn, we are including libX11-6, and a lot of other packages.

As the requirement was added to get access to dbus-launch, not dbus-launch.x11,
I think that some refinement can be done.

I am not sure what the best way is, maybe splitting the package is one, or
changing the requirement in libgio.
I think it is wrong to require dbus-1-x11 in libgio general. It should be
rather dbus-launch in my opinion.

And before you ask: Yes, that general requirement is an issue if you want a
small installation without X but with emacs or something else that requires
