The base system already contains some of the utilities that we need:

flex, iasl, libssl, uuid.

Then bcc already contains bin86 on FreeBSD, and then there are some
dependencies that I'm not sure why we need them: autoconf and automake
are not used during the build, x11 and sdl are also not required.

I've missed to add libpci, ncurses, getttext, gawk and libtool. And I'm
not sure about the xml2 and xslt ones, where they only used by xend?
Because I seem to be able to compile the tools fine without them.

Thanks, Roger.
