Exclamation Runtime dependency generator in pacman's makepkg
Hello everyone.

I just introduced a new makepkg -G switch. The switch calls a new dependency generator at the end of the build. That means it tells you what packages are needed for the resulting package. Many of our PKGBUILDs contain incomplete list of runtime dependencies. That's because the pacman's dependency check is completely independent of the build process. The new switch extracts the dynamic linking information from all final binaries and libraries and tells you the truth. Note, that it uses your local database copy ... that's why you should keep your system up-to-date.
