There are actually quite a number of other packages still having this
dependency, though perhaps not all on the architecture you were looking at.

Anyway, except for kdebase and gst-plugins-good0.10, which were deferred on
account of some other lib transitions, these packages were all scheduled for
binNMUs -- but a lot of them failed for one reason or another.  Those that
could be given back have been given back, leaving only three packages not
being rebuild: lynkeos.app, which needs updated for the (spurious) gnustep
-dev name change; wengophone, which FTBFS with a problem in its install
target; and motion, which FTBFS with bug #389304.
