dselect does nothing by itself. It depends on the access method.
Some access methods do package ordering before installing. Some others
For those users that do not have a package ordering method in dselect
we should try to make the Debian upgrade as user-friendly as we can.
Recompiling a few random essential packages from source (those who have
a wrong depends line) is a way to do that.
Is user-friendlyness not important enough when the only required thing is
to recompile a few packages?
