But those dependencies are provided by
so you can uninstall the daemon (pulseaudio) and keep those libraries for 
the packages that need them.

The gnome part is more tricky, because gnome requires esound, which is 
provided by pulseaudio-esound-compat (which requires pulseaudio daemon), and 
you don't have anymore a real esound packaged anymore, so you would need to 
get a package from an older mandriva.
