It doesn't depend on them per se; some of the demonstration scripts
that come with GIMP that make nifty logos won't run unless you change
the font -- the default font that they use is often from
freefont. (Only one script, AFAIK, uses a font from sharefont.) It's
simple to change what font GIMP uses for a script -- but the default
is often one from share/freefont.

When I made my experimental 0.99.10 .deb package of GIMP, I just had
it Recommend: sharefont and freefont.. 

for a more permanent solution, we could perhaps change the scripts
themselves to use more standard fonts.
