Well, there's a way to tell precisely who's pulling which dependency.
This command generates a dependency graph (I think Daiane/Gary already
mentioned this):

bitbake -g your-custom-image

This will create several text files, and one of them is pn-depends.dot,
where you can search for dependencies ("->" means "depends on"). Hope
this info makes your experience a little bit more scientific and less
empirical :D.

Also, Daiane mentioned blacklisting the package. I think this could be
useful, because when some package pulls-in the blacklisted dependency,
bitbake will print the exact dependency route across the graph and will
stop with error.
