gmake is built by default with locale support (which requires libiconv),
libiconv requires gettext-lib... this is the order (more or less):
* gmake -> libiconv/buildlink3.mk/builtin.mk -> gettext-lib/builtin.mk
Libiconv requires gettext-lib, its builtin.mk file is checked to know
if your system has the minimal dependency, otherwise the package
will be installed.
They are buildlink3 dependencies not "normal" dependencies, this
is why show-depends-dirs doesn't show nothing.
