English ports with non-english dependencies

I am relatively new to cvsup'ing port trees and rebuilding indexes. Why is it
that there are non-localized ports (ports not in a specific language tree)
with localized dependencies? Eg. tkscanfax is in the net tree but depends on
a Japanese port? I removed localized ports from my machine to save diskspace
and Portsdb doesn't work with these kinds of dependencies. For this reason I
have moved to Portindex which works great. However, my curiousity is still
piqued. Why would a non-localized port depend on a localized one?
Thanks for your time!
