I think we're going about this in the wrong way. We should probably
remove all mention of circular dependencies, and just state that
there's nothing except system things guaranteed for pkg_*.

If there's a need for dependencies that will definitely be installed for
pkg_setup, we should introduce an IDEPEND (for 'install').
