Not quite.  You need gvfs with EITHER gnome-disk-utility <= 3.2.x
(so gvfs builds the gdu volume monitor) OR udisks2 (so gvfs builds
the udisks2 volume monitor).  If you go with udisks2, there is no
need at all for gnome-disk-utility.

Well, what I've got here is a hybrid mix - there are a few things
that you will need gtk+3 if you have a recent version of the thing
(e.g. libnotify).
