All dependencies must be meet on the host system. If they are not you
will get alot of bogus stuff pulled into your ROOT.
This is why for ages I've been suggesting to people to first merge on /
then later using the -K option to sub merge into a new ROOT= so that
only the RDEPEND's will end up in $ROOT.
