Specially since there are more such hidden dependencies, like data2inc

IOW there is a difference between the most minimal dependencies possible
(e.g. for the first period after the initial bootstrap) and what is normal
and supportable.

Normal and supportable is having the last release installed, use that to
bootstrap trunk, and then crosscompile.
