That's the purpose of README (it should be read)
While some package may have small number of optional deps, others may
have more than a dozen and the maintainer may or may not be able to
detect all of it.

automatic tools are there to help us building the job automatically, but
if it requires special attention, it's up to us (users) to do the job
done :)
