I agree. Also, the current list has only compile dependencies, is it 
possible to make two lists, one with installation dependencies and one 
with runtime dependencies? The runtime deps are needed when the packages 
is compiled, but when a package is build for another machine, the latter 
should not always have the compile deps for running the package.
