Though I don't think it is needed, I'm adding a little note. It will
be committed in just a couple of minutes.

There are so many packages that fall into the same exact category,
I'm not really fond of setting precedent for noting which optional
dependency packages are also shipped in the original package tarball.

Think popt, libpng, libjpeg, etc. Many packages will use internal
copies if a system-installed copy is not found.
