As I understand the rules, if package X directly uses (explicitly
links to, includes headers from, whatever) package Y, then package X
should include Y's bl3.mk. Relying on the files being available
because some other package Z also uses Y is wrong -- not only because
as you've noticed it causes the build to break silently, but also
because needed revbumps after shared library changes won't get done
So when you spot such cases, send them along...
