Nothing per say. Its the case of ntop's dependency on it for a base
leve firewall/router style device it pulls in essentially the whole of
gnome. A quick look at graphviz's list of deps it looks like it has
split up the dependencies quite a bit. See the complaint about ntop
and it pulling in metacity further up in the thread.
