gsettings-desktop-schemas 3.32.0-2 has added new dependencies on default fonts `cantarell-fonts` & `adobe-source-code-pro-fonts`

They are not required for the schemas and as such should be marked optional dependencies instead.

The package functions fine without these font packages, they are only required when other software reads the font settings from the schema.
This task depends upon

I also would like the fonts dependencies to be amended. I don't really mind `cantarell-fonts` being there, since it's already a dependency of `gtk3` and several GNOME apps, but I'd rather not have Adobe Source Code Pro installed if it's not needed.
