"gnome-keyring" and "gcr" have runtime dependency of "gtk3" it isn't a runtime dependency unless you want to use the included applications at "/usr/bin/gcr-viewer" and "/usr/bin/gnome-keyring" / "/usr/bin/gnome-keyring-3". It is a build dependency and an optional dependency if you wish to use the included gtk3 gui. Not needed for the functionality of the program gnome-keyring daemon to function.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
extra/gnome-keyring 3.8.1-1
extra/gcr 3.8.1-1

* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:

Install packages and force remove gtk3 or edit the PKGBUILD and rebuild from abs changing runtime dep to build+optional dep and recompile. Everything still works for basic functionality of keyring as far as I can see.
This task depends upon

It's needed during operation when prompting the user about untrusted keys or certificates.
