libgnomeprint instructions

I'm trying to install libgnomeprint-  As a prereq for gnumeric.
 I have not installed gnome.  The instructions say:

./configure --prefix=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0` \
    --sysconfdir=/etc/gnome --disable-gtk-doc

But ORBit-2.0 is not listed as a dependency.  When I execute:

pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0

I get no output.  This cannot be correct for --prefix.  This is also not
explained.  According to svn, DJ inserted these instructions.

Should we add ORBit-2 as a required dependency?
