Hm, here it looks different:

samba:~$ yum deplist grub
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Finding dependencies: 
Excluding Packages in global exclude list
package: grub.x86_64 0.97-13
  dependency: system-logos
   provider: fedora-logos.noarch 6.0.98-3.fc7
  dependency: /sbin/install-info
   provider: info.x86_64 4.8-15
  dependency: /bin/sh
   provider: bash.x86_64 3.2-9.fc7
  dependency: mktemp
   provider: mktemp.x86_64 3:1.5-25.fc7
  dependency: /usr/bin/cmp
   provider: diffutils.x86_64 2.8.1-16.fc7

I don't see gtk, but maybe yum isn't perfect.

Same for your smartmontools issue:
43 samba:~$ yum deplist smartmontools | grep usermod
Exit 1

On Fedora 7.
