dependencies. However, if you use <prgn>apt-get</prgn>
(see <ref id="apt-get">) or <prgn>aptitude</prgn> (see <ref id="aptitude">)
as your package management tool, they will
track automatically installed packages and give the possibility to
remove them, when no packages needing them remain in your system.
