I guess that makes sense, yes. We already have special handling for
other tools like wpasupplicant there, in
tools/generate_di+k_list. While I'm updating, I see that netcfg-udeb
also depends on ndisc6-udeb and wide-dhcpv6-client-udeb. Should we
consider pulling in ndisc6 and wide-dhcpv6-client as well?
