Actually, it does. Installed packages are not supposed to be considered
a builtin and therefore the dependency computation from pbulk is
supposed to be invariant to whether or not the dependencies are
installed. What you hit is a problem with the files, where
a dependency is pulled in, that doesn't actually exist in the
corresponding package.

make show-buildlink3
is a start to find the package that does this.
