I've been thinking about this, and perhaps the easiest thing to
do is just substitute " then" for the "," in the list of depends.
Then, folks would install them in the required order. :-)

Yes, it will be. You'll probably end up installing anywhere between
12-15 GNOME packages. And then some of Gnumeric's functionality still
won't work unless you install the GNOME help stuff including Yelp.

This needs to be added to Gnumeric's optional depends. With you only
installing the stuff explicitly required, we should be able to get
a good idea what all needs to be added to the Gnumeric depends.

I've read (in some BLFS lists) that Gnumeric has some trouble if a
GNOME desktop is not installed. I suppose we'll find out how accurate
those reports are.
