Great! Which script are you using? Today I've added a few "check_*deps"
targets to boot-floppies Makefile, that use Richard Braakman's depcheck
scripts to find unsatisfied dependencies and non-existant packages.
The downside is that Richard scripts are in python, and I don't like
having YA interpreter in my system just for this.

IIRC, all the required packages are already on the base system, so
there's no need to add them to the profiles too.

That's the best option, as that means less work for me. ;-)
