[ILUG] Package dependencies

I don't really use debian, so I won't defend it.. I do use Gentoo and
FreeBSD and both are excellent, not bloated handholding distros for kiddies
who feel proud when they get all of their drivers installed.
Also I think you will find that my gentoo system compiled with -mcpu-k6
-march-k6 -03 -pipe -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -malign-jumps-2
-malign-functions=2 -foptimize-register-move -ffast-math -frerun-loop-opt
-frerun-cse-after-loop -ffunction-cse -fpeephole -fomit-frame-pointer
-mfancy-math-387 -malign-loops=2 for 80% + of the binaries on my system will
run significantly faster then for example Mandrake which was p1 optimized
the last time I bothered checking.
But perhaps you are right... perhaps I would get better system performance
from a system not specifically compiled for my cpu with the switches I think
pertinant.... perhaps I should go back to windows in that case.

lets just quote a question from the debian lists..
no-one has produced one benchmark that _proves_ that a distro is faster
if you compile it by hand (rather than getting a precompiled version).
Maybe you'd do us the honour?
rpm's dependencies are fine.. just use a front end which understands them.
next thing you'll tell me dpkg sucks because when I try to do
dpkg --install evolution
it tells me I need gtk.
