The crypto libraries are brought in because gnome-vfs is linked to them.
libgnomeui links to gnome-vfs, so any GNOME application that links to libgnomeui will be linked to the crypto libraries.
It would be better if gnome-vfs dlopened the crypto libraries on demand when they are used, that would avoid linking all the GNOME applications to the crypto libraries (and probably avoid loading them from disk on startup, as they probably are not used).
