It is not. These deps are coming indirectly from libfontconfig. Use the
magic incantation (I have forgotten) which was suggested by someone 
(also forgotten).

There was a long thread before release on that.

Basically ldd follows indirect dependencies, so your libfontconfig is linked
against shared libz and expat, so they are lsted here.
