Actually, it is not a dependency. GDK is a part of GTK+ that more or less
abstracts the low-level interaction with the windowing system (X11, Win32
etc). So, installing GTK+ installs several library files, for example
libgdk_pixbuf, libgdk and libgtk. In the same way, GLib consists of
libglib, libgmodule, libgobject and libgthread; Pango has libraries like
libpango, libpangoft2, libpangox, libpangoxft, libpangowin32 etc etc. And
in addition some other stuff like configuration files and header files
gets installed as well.

If you encounter any more problems you might want to take another look in
/usr/local to see if there is more old stuff there. (But don't delete
files randomly ;) )

I'm glad to hear that!
