That doesn't scale. I can't expect everyone who might be building this
package (e.g. a sponsor, or the buildd hosts) to install packages
without specification from the package configuration itself.
I know I can hack around this; that's not what I'm seeking. I'm
wondering why such hacking would be necessary, and suspecting that
either my assumptions, or the assumptions of the build tools, or
perhaps both, need readjusting.
