Ok. Will do.
I have also written a script which computes naive package dependencies
based on directory containment. I.e., if package A contains path foo/
and package B contains path foo/bar/, then B depends on A. I propose
to write these dependencies to distrib/sets/deps, which regpkg will
use to produce @pkgdep directives.
Attached are syspkgdeps (computes package dependencies), culldeps
(removes redundant dependencies), sets.subr (packing list functions),
and deps (example output).
I don't think that I need to explain why proper dependencies for system
packages are important, but if you want for me to say a few words,
