I still don't think we should be specifying "RDEPEND is PDEPEND if the package manager feels like it". That's something for the package mangler to provide as a horrible --ignore-dependencies-to-break-cycles option. Also, isn't pkg_setup the same as pkg_preinst, availability-wise? -- Ciaran McCreesh
