Re: dpkg-checkbuilddeps to generate a frontend friendly package list


I fixed some bugs with my previous patch, and now the new one is found at [1].
Unfortunately, I also found that I erroneously believed that AptPkg is only 
loaded run-time, which is not true and I will need to find ways to tackle that 
as well. For the time being, libapt-pkg-perl is need, but the apt cache is 
only loaded when the -f option is used, and not with -s. You can see that is 
you comment $_config->{quiet} = 2;

If you want to check that patch, you should clone the master, patch it, and 
build and install your own dpkg package eventually in a chroot, because there 
are some API changes recently introduced with Dpkg module.
