Welcone to the Wonderful Hell of Dependencies.

I don't have a desktop environment on my systems at all, just xorg,
Openbox window manager and lxpanel.  xarchiver got installed as a
"Recommends" of the xfe file manager suite along with a lot of other
stuff xfe uses.  Trying to uninstall it once it's installed is an
exercise of futility. Personally, I don't use it.  It just sits on the
system ignored.
