Re: Binary package for spamassassin requires excessive dependencies?

Can you check if the actual binary  package lists those dependencies,
by fetching it separately and funning pkg_info on it?

I have built it locally and also see nothing like this; just wget,
gnup2, re2c and a bunch of perl modules.
pkg_info -S reports 93 MB.   Which is a big, but nothing like what you
are seeing.

(Basically, we need to first understand if this is a bug in the built
package or a bug in pkgin).)
