Strange. This last week of building packages with "bmake package" ..
whenever it built a dependency it package it up (and cleaned too).

If the DEPENDS_TARGET is not set, then it becomes "package". (So each
dependency is packaged up.)

That should package up any dependency that it builds and installs. (It
works for me.)

Maybe you already have the dependency previously installed?

perl is pulled in because of the:
USE_PERL5=		build

libtool-base is from
