FWIW, in robotpkg I do have two kind of 'barriers': bootstrap-depends and
depends. This is of course directly/totally/fully inspired by pkgsrc but they
are IMHO more decoupled in practice. Targets like extract/patch only
require 'bootstrap-depends' (so you'd put 'gem' in this class of
dependencies). The main targets require '(full) depends'.

If the command line goals only require 'bootstrap' dependencies, then only that
is checked, so you can do 'make extract' without magic variables and without
installing the world beforehand ;)
