 There is nothing to fix here. That gnome only depends in xfree-common,
it's the same that xserver-xfree86 doesn't depend on fonts[1]. Forcing
that dependency will make some instalations where both things are not
needed bloated. And if you want or need an X Window Server, that's what
x-window-system metapackage  is for ;-)
