This is not a bug and it is sort of intentional. We only list linked
core-ports in the dependencies. If we listed everything the dependencies
would soon be *very* long. For instance more or less all crux ports
depends on "make" but its not listed anywhere. Same with basic stuff
like a shell (/bin/sh) etc. 

We are assuming that the core ports always are installed.
