[Slackbuilds-users] Very simple way of finding dependency

I know SBo and Slackware doesn't have a system in place to track 
dependencies - and most of the time that suits me just fine. However, on 
occasion, I stumble over a piece of SBo software installed on my machine 
- such as a library, and I would like to know why is it there - which 
package needs it. I was thinking that, if when using the search field on 
SBo website, it would also search through the .info and README files of 
packages, I could easily get a list of packages which depend on or use 
the library - and spot if one of them is something that I use or have 
installed. It would be crude, but I think it would work.
