Unless there are hidden dependencies (ie, depends when found but silently
carries on otherwise) then yes, the changes fully retain that behaviour..
perhaps its not obvious from the patch but there are insertions into a
couple of sections and while I no doubt do not use every library in the
list, my system (i386) is running ok since last week without complaint

in fact I believe there may still be more .WAITs in lib/Makefile than are
properly required, but I can look at reducing them afterwards.
