I am installing the package 'antiword'. This package seems to have
dependencies to packages that have more dependencies and so on. Packages
have been building non-stop. Is there a way to see these dependencies
before I start building a package? Can I go back and see what packages
installed to satisfy these dependencies? Is there a way to set the
dependencies to 'no auto' and prompt me to satisfy dependencies?
Also this is on the same subject but off the topic of dependencies. If I
have been building a package and the ftp server is slow as hell, can I
stop the build cleanly and tell it to use a different ftp server? Sorry
for all of the questions. If these are answered in a document somewhere
please point me there also. Thanks.
