Okay.  It seems I don't quite understand the reasoning behind package

- It's marked as "required".
- Install disks will use it if installed.
    (It comes on the install disks, then?)
- It isn't neccessary unless we plan to build install disks.

If something uses something else only once it has been installed, then isn't
the second package "optional" since the first package also works without it?
And, even if the first is dependant on the second, if I'm not going to be
using the first, why should the second be "required"?

What am I missing, here?

    In theory, theory and practice are the same.  In practice, they're not.
