Works for me, I just committed these lines:

# Checkpkg suggests adding the following lines to the GAR recipe:
# This is a summary; see above for details.
RUNTIME_DEP_PKGS_CSWgnustep-back += CSWlibart
If any of the reported errors were false positives, you can override them
pasting the lines below to the GAR recipe.
CHECKPKG_OVERRIDES_CSWgnustep-back += pkginfo-opencsw-repository-uncommitted
CHECKPKG_OVERRIDES_CSWgnustep-back += missing-dependency|CSWlibart
CHECKPKG_OVERRIDES_CSWgnustep-back += surplus-dependency|CSWlibfontconfig1
CHECKPKG_OVERRIDES_CSWgnustep-back += surplus-dependency|CSWlibcairo2
CHECKPKG_OVERRIDES_CSWgnustep-back += surplus-dependency|CSWlibxrender

Best regards
