Got it. Thanks for the explanation!
That seems weird to have a library package depend on a non-library
package. It seems like it would be better if there were a libunbound
package that provided the unbound library and that both the unbound
and the gnutls package could depend on. But then you have the pain of
splitting the unbound package, and as you said upthread, "there are
plans to eventually not depend on unbound for this in GnuTLS itself," so
maybe it's not worth the trouble and your proposed solution is the best.
