I'm not aware of any packages actually using this.
I was actually told that it was me who removed this (when removing
BUILD_DEPENDS, and renaming RUN_DEPENDS to DEPENDS... the old RUN_DEPENDS
apparently(?) never supported this)
You can still see some fragments of this in pkgsrc, fwiw, but I guess I
won't dive in to remove them or add a check.
