After numerous attempts to try to remotely help people stuck by the QA test
that a base package requires a -dev package, I needed to figure out a way
to add diagnostics to the logs to help identify what was happening.

The patch adds some basic diagnostics to indicate what dependency was found
and what package it triggered to be added to the rdepends.

In addition it was observed that a lot of duplicate processing was occuring
so I modifed the system to eliminate the duplicates.  This has the potential
to improve performance, but I was not able to measure anything statistically
significant in my builds.

The following changes since commit 0f795f81fe5ad3ef78c21a177eca90fbc8810f81:

  qemu: disable vnc-jpeg compression (2012-05-24 08:53:40 +0100)
