> Does SBo allow SlackBuilds to have circular dependencies?

There are none in the set of REQUIRES= at the moment.  If your new
queue tool raises an error when it finds one, people may be grateful
one day :-)

Optional deps may be a different matter.  The gdal slackbuild has two
(!) that can be enabled with options that are documented only in the
script's comments, and there may be more like that.  If ever there was
a case for preferring manual builds over automated tools, and for
showing how flexible the whole SBo setup is, this is it.
