If it finds the "Source|Build-Depends" field, it atleast prints "checking
source dependencies" (will change to build dependencies). If nothing is
wrong then it prints nothing further. If there is no field, then it
happily continues without skipping a beat or giving notice. As I said
before, I am of the opinion that the field should be voluntary and not
required (although bug reports could be filed if some one feels it is
needed for as certain package).
