You are right that it doesn't depend on the GNUstep core libraries,
but it should.  See
http://lists.debian.org/debian-release/2008/07/msg00068.html for some

The other packages in this situation are gnustep-netclasses and
pantomime1.2.  If they don't get rebuilt, their reverse dependencies
(gnumail.app, lusernet.app, talksoup.app, viewpdf.app, etc.) will fail
