Isn't that done specifically on by the .so version number? E.g.,
When gnucash is linked against libgsf-1.so.113 doesn't that make
the dependency explicit on packages that supply that version

Well, we do depend on gtk-2 >= 2.4 and a few other "minimums", but
configure should specifically test for that.
