That many packages depend on avahi, has already been reported on bugzilla.

whatever that links to packages that contains this files:

will depend more or less on avahi libraries...


package "foobar" uses libtool and it gets linked, it takes library
information from, because it requires libgnomevfs-2,
but also contains dependencies to

usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ -lgmodule-2.0 -lgthread-2.0
/usr/lib/ -lm /usr/lib/ -lnsl -lgobject-2.0
-lssl -lcrypto -lz /usr/lib/ -lglib-2.0
/usr/lib/ -ldbus-1 /usr/lib/ -ldl
-lresolv -lutil -lrt'

now "foobar" that required only libgnomevfs-2 ends requiring all that
libraries, regardless if the are used or not.. even more all
dependencies of the other referenced "*.la" files too !! this utter
mess goes straight to the beggining again when "foobar" gets
BuildRequired by other packages...

argh! :( ...fixing this is a WIP though.
