I actually quite like the 'NOT', to make it more obvious something
odd/wrong is happening. Actually I wouldn't mind 'make install'
failing if all dependencies are not found, and have to run
'make install IGNORE_MISSING_DEPENDS=1' to bypass that.
(I'd want the failure message to mention IGNORE_MISSING_DEPENDS :)
