Well, they are libraries, don't know exactly, but i guess this is the choice
of the gnome maintainer ... I would have put it under the x11 section maybe ?
Anyway, the binary get in all the needed sections once built.
best way to check it is to do a ls -l */*gnome* | less from within the source
directory, lftp for one supports such nice things.
