Just to help Russ out here, but he already described how capitalisation
checking currently work in lintian. To re-iterate: it does *not* check
whether a given word matches a given correct capitalisation, but rather
looks for common errors.  So, instead of asking for the addition of
correctly capitalized words, you should ask for the addition of common
errors mapping to the correct capitalisation.

Regarding the list above I would guess that what you want is something
like the following:

* glib -> GLib
* gobject -> GObject
* gtk+ -> GTK+
* gconf -> GConf
* gnomevfs -> GnomeVFS
* gstreamer -> GStreamer

Add other translation rules as needed.
