I'm working on a local package which has

DEPENDS+=	something-else

That something-else is not a build-time dependency, and it takes VERY
long to build.  Is there a way I can have make not build this dependency?

It seems DEPENDS implies BUILD_DEPENDS.  How hard would it be to add a
PACKAGE_DEPENDS or similar?  (I'd rather see DEPENDS implied meaning
change, but that seems like too drastic of a change.)
