Sometimes they are, but having tons of those lines listed for all X
programs when you haven't selected X is imho not.

We should probably move X applications / libraries to it's own sub

 Hamish> Alternatively the package could use select instead of depends.

Yeah, but that wouldn't work here as there's multiple providers of X
(and anyway, including a monster like X behind your back isn't really
userfriendly either).

But in general I agree - Use select for hard dependencies and only
print those comment lines for stuff like toolchain settings (locales,
wchar, ..).
