[Slackbuilds-users] Python packages missing dependencies: should we report them?

Some time ago I raised the problem of building Python package 
(borgbackup) in chroot environment, which has no Internet connection.
It turned out that the build fails, because Python setup procedure was 
not able to download some required dependencies.
I then added the dependency to REQUIRES and the package builds fine in 
chroot without network connection.

I now encountered this exact problem when trying to build protobuf package.
It fails to build because of missing google-apputils dependency.
If I was building in an environment with network connection, 
google-apputils would be downloaded automatically and the build (I 
guess) would succeed.

My question is:
should we consider this a bug and report missing dependency?

Best regards,
