In addition my observations:

1. Sounds like fpmake doesn't recursively add dependencies? e.g. rtl-objpas
should come as dep of fcl-base.
2. if the patch just adds ALL those dependencies to all those packages, are
they really tested as being really required for all of those?

E.g. I can't imagine rtl-console be needed for so many of them.
