Can you say more about how the dependency info is used in the snapshot
build process? In this case, I would think that the minimal build
doesn't include either package involved in this, and the regular build
includes both. Would that mean that the dependency error wouldn't
break things?  Or are there other uses of the dependency info in the
snapshot process?
