 At least in the past this wasn't the case, they got built every time
which caused different problems that I ranted about on here. I *think*
Simon did fix something in that respect, but I'm not completely sure if
it does now do the sane thing here...

 I'm slowly digging into it, but I rather want to postpone changes in
that respect to a later stage and not make it happen with the move.
Doing it during the move will cause difficulties to pin down what the
cause of potential problems is.

 Yes, that's what I try to figure out. If someone has documented
anywhere that the actual build dependencies are, pretty please raise
your voice. Also with respect to the doc parts! For the installation
guide I guess it can be extracted from the package meta informations,
but not everything is packaged.

 I rather would want to avoid that. We want to have a clear picture on
what actually is needed. At least we want to try that. In the end a
complete sync might be done nevertheless, but it won't be the basis for
the investigations and findings.
