The dependency check is probably best to perform with fatrace, see http://www.piware.de/2012/02/fatrace-report-system-wide-file-access-events/

Just install all the dependencies and run fatrace, then dpkg -S every file printed and then sort -u the package list. Hmm, I wonder if I could automate that...

So, this gives all normal files which are accessed at runtime:
# fatrace | grep gnome-control

However, it does not give a list of libs linked to the panel executable. Looks like it can be tracked with ldd: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5526511/which-library-the-program-is-linked-to

Okay, "ldd /usr/lib/control-center-1/panels/*" does print all library dependencies but it's a bit too complete for our case. I wonder if dependency lists can be extracted from source code.

Just a tip: the print plug requires "cups-pk-helper" to add, remove or manage any printer

This is a part of a bigger picture and doing just thing for beta1 won't save the day, so let's leave it as it is for now and come up with something *decent* for beta2.

I've managed to fix everything without modularizing G-C-C itself.
