If you do that, things are *very* likely to break. The info file is only
supposed to list dependencies that are specific to that package. If one of
those dependencies have its own dependencies, they won't be listed in the
parent info to minimize duplication.

In this case, protobuf is a dependency if pokerth and it has several of its
own dependencies: python-dateutil, google-apputils, python-gflags, and
pytz. python-dateutil has two additional dependencies: six and

If you don't build six and setuptools-scm, python-dateutil either won't
build or could be broken. If you don't build python-dateutil along
with google-apputils, python-gflags, and pytz, then protobuf may not build
or be broken. That could cause pokerth to either not build, be broken, or
could be missing functionality.

Since you're running -current, if you weren't already aware, SBo doesn't
reach -current at all and many things are broken on it. Matteo has an
unofficial repo for -current where he tries to fix anything that's broken
on -current, many times with help from others. Eventually, this work will
end up becoming the official version on SBo for Slackware 15.0.

If you haven't already, you really should check out his toys on the LQ
forum as it discusses how to use his repo.


Good luck!
