There are lots of optional dependencies that are not in the book listed 
for packages in that are in the book. What should we do about, 
dependencies that are external to the BLFS book itself, in the profiles.

1. List them.

2. Not list them.

3. Do 1. And possibly, although this is a major stretch, provide some 
profiles for some of these packages, so that they are available. This 
could possibly be done in a repository seperate from the BLFS profile 

What do you guys think?
