GNOME without media?

I notice that when I install GNOME, it pulls in all kinds of
multimedia-related things, like gstreamer and esound. I don't even have
a sound card in this system, so clearly these don't help me at all.
However, for some reason a lot of other, seemingly unrelated packages
depend on these media component.
For example, trying to remove esound fails because esound is a
dependancy of libgnome and libbobonoui and gdm. Do these REALLY need
esound to function? Similarly, gstreamer is a dependancy for evolution
Is there any easy way to get GNOME installed without these useless
