Hey, same here ... a refugeee user of xfce.

uninstalling gnome is becoming almost ritural for me for major upgrade.
Done that for several releases.  Aptitude makes it very easy.

Here is what you do with aptitude.

Now you see gnome package.

Down to Depends and Recommends.
Press m to killl "A" markings for each.

Now you can remove gnome without having major issue.  Remove package as
you need.
