Ok for this I did the following:

init 3
# yum remove "*gnome*" "*qt*" "*gtk*" "kd*" "PackageKit*"
# yum install zif
# zif by itself calls for libgnome-keyring libsoup
# zif install paprefs

I hope the above helps answer your question. I can install the RC2
with a minimal install if that would help any.

In this I have only one annoyance. The zif tool does not wait for a
RETURN after typing y or n. This led to me removing a bunch of stuff I
didn't want to, but didn't think :). In this case it is probably a
viewpoint issue versus a bug.
