OK - I implemented all that in trunk.

xxx_NEEDS_GUI can be set to YES or NO to force linking (or not linking)
against gnustep-gui.

If nothing is specified, the traditional behaviour is followed: applications,
bundles, frameworks, palettes and libraries link against the gui library
(if available), all others do not.

I recommend specifying xxx_NEEDS_GUI = YES/NO in all bundles, frameworks and
libraries to make sure the right type of linking is always done.  Older 
versions will ignore it; newer ones (well, from the next release) will use it
to make sure the gui library is linked (or not) as required.  That's good as
it will prevent any of these "ghost dependencies" problems.

So it should all be completely backwards-compatible. :-)
