The control-center dependency-chain includes -devel packages.

Above list of "REQUIRES" shows all the packages in the dep-chain,
which include .pc files. They are pulled in by RPM's new pkgconfig(foo)
auto-dependencies most likely.

Notice "gtk2-engines" in above list and the separate report for it in my
original mail. It's the culprit. It "Requires: pkgconfig(gtk+-2.0)", which
pulls in gtk2-devel into control-center's dep-chain.
