Debian source packages are used to build Debian binary packages. Debian package building requires compiling source
package to binary package and thus tools and libraries that compilation uses must be present in the system. Thus
building a Debian binary package depends on extra tools and libraries.
This document contains information about Debian source package build time dependencies. Its purpose is to provide
useful information for Scratchbox development team about which tools should be included on Scratchbox Debian
development kit. Debian devkit has been divided further to docctools that contains document genaration tools, rootstrap
that contains libraries and actual Debian devkit that contains build tools specific to Debian (for example dpkg).
This document has been divided to required packages (Debian base sources) and optional packages. Library
dependencies are outsides of this documents scope and they are provided as an appendix.
Optional packages build dependencies provide useful information for tools that are needed inside Scratchbox.
Following table lists build dependencies and their hit count for optional packages. Packages that have hit count 0 are
required because some binary or library dependency requires them and thus have no references in sources.
Following packages are dependencies that one of needs to be installed.
