there's 105 Build-Depends, maybe it will be faster to add just one package ;-)
The number of 20 useless dependencies is just estimate. Now I'm only sure that libjifty-dbi-perl and libtemplate-declare-perl are only used by jifty, but it takes 5 months to package all missing libraries with sometimes 3 or more missing levels, so it will be hard to be sure that removing some of them don't break a valid package. Do you have a method to find them? Maybe a starting point could be to use this list : http://firstname.lastname@example.org (but it isn't concern only jifty)
However libjifty-dbi-perl and libtemplate-declare-perl will be used in catalyst project so maybe few people will be happy to find them in debian.
