Perl is also in LFS, ssh is a run time dependency.

gettext is in LFS, curl is a recommended dependency, Tk is listed as an
optional dependency, which leave openssl and expat.
I was thinking of openssl as a dependency of libcurl but it seems that
git can use it even without libcurl. I hadn't noticed expat is used by
git. Thanks for this. I'll add openssl and expat as optional
dependencies of git.
