I wouldn't say that. At the moment we use:

* IXR (xmlrpc interface)
* Snoopy (remote URL fetcher)
* Magpie (RSS parser)
* Gettext (i10n)
* DBX (fancy moving boxes in admin)
* tx_sack (ajax)
* tinyMCE (wysiwyg)
* KSES (filtering dangerous tags in posts)
* ezSQL (DB interaction)

That's a fair share of external libraries, and I've probably missed some.
