I agree with this and, in my opinion, in the "Required" and "For extra 
functionality:* sections only should be listed the dependencies actualy 
needed for compiling the package with the current instructions in the book.

The others dependencies (for "exotic" options of configure, or used 
post-compilation in run time) can be listed after the explication of the 
comands, like a mention about their existencie and a reference to the 
package's docs for more information.
