Actually, it should be in /usr/portage/profiles/use.local.desc, and it
affects 4 packages, which I tend to think is enough to warrant it being
added as a global USE flag.

3 or 4 packages.

Well, they aren't "required" for Gnome to work, which is probably why
they are enabled by USE flags.  Again, I'm not a Gnome developer, so I
am sure someone from the Gnome team would be able to tell you more
