That says that HAL can use the pm-utils package. Not that pm-utils
depends on HAL. Systems without HAL installed can use other mechanisms
to call pm-utils, like acpi, udisks, udev, etc.

That is referring to Gnome's power management on Lenny. It uses acpi,
pm-utils and hal. Squeeze may or may not do the same, I'm not sure.
But again, that says nothing about pm-utils needing HAL to work.
Merely that HAL is the mechanism used to watch for ACPI events, but
others are available to do that job as well.
