Actually I would still leave it listed. I think the idea of deps. is that you
want to show people what you need installed, or maybe more to the point
_leave_ installed to have that package remain working. zlib might be in the
LFS book but what if:
1) you don't install zlib with the book
2) decide you don't need zlib so you want to uninstall it not knowing that
libmng needs it.
