[OpenWrt-Devel] Why does perl get compiled even if it not selected by any package?

Hi Hannu,

yes - without any dependency tweaking (e.g. by introducing conditionals
like you suggested) a given source package build-depends on the union of
all dependencies of all binary packages declared by the source package.

The only way to mitigate that is using conditional dependencies in the
form DEPENDS:=+PACKAGE_foo-with-bar:libbar
