libxcursor is built with (custom, non-upstream) index.theme referencing Adwaita, but adwaita-icon-theme is not listed in package dependencies.

This should probably be a per-user setting anyway, so proposed solution is to drop custom index.theme.
Alternatively, adwaita-icon-theme should be added to libxcursor dependencies.
This task depends upon

index.theme is there for a reason.  FS#38032 

Are you certain the gnome-themes-standard optdep isn't enough?

Oh wow. If that's something gnome-shell needs, shouldn't index.theme belong to gnome-themes-standard?
There is gnome-shell <- gnome-themes-standard dependency already.

Optdep is not enough in that it allows installing index.theme without the files referenced there.
That's exactly the situation I have, libxcursor but no gnome-* and no gtk3-*, thus no Adwaita.

That dangling reference does not seem to break anything however, so if that's the only way to fix Gnome then call it not a bug I guess.
