Default Bits of the gnome 1.x removal effort

In case someone thinks about fixing gmanedit, please also consider
fixing the debian/changelog encoding (#453982) which is also a lenny
release goal.

This can be fixed with "iconv -t utf-8 -f iso-8859-1 changelog
>changelog.new" (I checked that this changelog file is not a mix of
UTF-8 and ISO-885961).

Also, on a related note, while preparing glotski for upload, I noticed
that it was linking in unnecessary libraries by blindly passing the
output of `pkg-config libgnomeui-2.0 --libs` to the linker. The
resulting binary depended on a lot of libraries that it didn't actually
use. Adding '-Wl,--as-needed' to the link line got rid of the
unnecessary dependencies.

Just thought this tidbit might be helpful to people who want to clean up
spurious package dependencies.


Let's eat some disquits while we format the biskettes.
