There are virtual packages which could be used to express the PDF
-> tools relationship if it was important to do that.
As an example, the r-doc-pdf package suggests pdf-viewer.
Perhaps rt2500-source should recommend bzip2? The relationship seems to
fit the definition - a package that is usually installed along with it
but not strictly required.
