I don't know 100%, but the list of modules is what is RT itself says  
is required when you install it.  There is a script included with it  
that checks for required modules, and only those modules is what I  
listed in the build+run deps.  I did not analyze the application to  
see which is which.

You will notice that I don't literally set RUN_DEPS=BUILD_DEPS  
because the ports infrastructure already starts with the MakeMaker/ 
Module::Build stuff in build deps, and those are definitely not  
needed at runtime.
