indirect build dependencies


the build logs for the gpsd package contain the following notice:

| Built successfully
| NOTE: The package could have used binaries from the following packages
| (access time changed) without a source dependency:
|   python-dev: /usr/bin/python
|   xlibs-dev: /usr/X11R6/lib/libICE.so /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so /usr/X11R6/lib/libXp.so

I guess I can ignore the python-dev line, since /usr/bin/python is in package python.

What about the xlibs-dev line? Currently, gpsd build-depends on lesstif-dev and libxaw7-dev,
which pull in the xlibs-dev package. Is this enough, or should I explicitly depend on xlibs-dev,
or rather libice-dev, libx11-dev, libxp-dev?

Cheers, Til
