Well, this should be caught by the package updater, shouldn't it? And
I don't remember that we had problems because of this before.

I fear that with this change, when a package update introduces a new
dependency (not yet noted in pkgsrc) with this change the dependency
might get autoinstalled from CPAN and an inattentive updater might
overlook that.
