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

| as well. For the time being, libapt-pkg-perl is need, but the apt cache is

Use something like

eval {
    require AptPkg::Config;
    import AptPkg::Config '$_config';
    require AptPkg::System;
    import AptPkg::System '$_system';
    require AptPkg::Cache;
    require AptPkg::Version;
if ($@) {
  die "libapt-pkg-perl not available, can't use -f";

to do the check at run-time.
