That doesn't help much. What I'm looking for is a list of the relevant
packages (resolved wildcard dependencies) that were installed on the
build system, at the time the package was built. The rest of my idea
(a database of installed dependencies, keyed by wildcards) gets you
this easily, but doesn't depend on it.
