It is not. Most probably the only grief it cause is to make the
dependency graph so obscure that I cannot make anything out of it:
On the other hand there is a circular depends libxi-dev <--> libx11-dev.
(btw, the last line of the description of libxi-dev have 2 typos,
maual and inteat.)
Imagine a large red swirl here.
