Evidently.  ;->

You need to look recursively at the '^requires: ' line of setup.ini.

Vim: alternatives bash libiconv2 libintl8 libncursesw10 vim-common
  => vim-common: bash gawk perl xxd
  => perl: libssp0 libgcc1 libgdbm4 libdb4.5 crypt libbz2_1 perl_vendor _autorebase
  => perl_vendor: perl libssp0 libgcc1 libbz2_1 zlib0 libopenssl100 libncurses10 libreadline7 libncursesw10 libxml2 libiconv2 libexpat1 _autorebase

Doing a complete analysis is left as an exercise for
[ the reader | insomniacs | the masochistic ].
(That's why we let setup do it.)
