The only dependencies in the book right now are the installation dependencies. 
I don't know of any run-time dependency trees in existence right now, but you 
could do a trial&error (that's how I got an LFS system mentioned in the LFS 
book down to 5 MB. Just kept removing things until other programs stopped 
working, but I never documented what I had to keep to get Apache running 
properly and all that).
