You hit the nail on the head. It is not _supposed_ to have
dependencies. But apparently it _does_ have dependencies, at least
according to some dependency analyzers.

Not scanning this particular kit hides the symptoms, but doesn't cure
the problem (oistrich approach).

I agree with Hugo that it would be useful if we could find a way to
help out automated dependency checkers.
