Hmmm, that seems to be a lot.  Strangely enough if I try to build in
pbuilder it downloads several dependencies from the internet - except if
sitting behind a proxy that is unknown to the pbuilder environment.  I
have never observed this before - seems bazel knows "tricks" to
undermine the offlineish nature of the pbuilder environment.  I have
never seen this happening before.

I've commited some initial packaging to Salsa[1].  It also needs
some third party software.  The first one is


I wonder whether all those dependencies are mandatory or whether
we might be able to exclude something optional.

I could *help* with this - but I'm clearly neither qualified
nor does my time limit permit really focussing on this work.

Kind regards
