  My laptop, where I do all my packaging work but final build, has
none of them installed. I've a separate machine with several chroots
(lenny, squeeze, unstable and several for ubuntu) managed with sbuild that
I use when I want to really build the package I will upload. Due to disk
space, I cannot instal them (chroots) on my laptop.
  I other people work like me, these tools can be moved to Recommends
instead of Depends.
