second question: dependancies not being checked.

I'm having trouble getting a requirement to work. I'm trying to build
the port I'm developing without the dependancy installed, expecting to
get a related error. This looks like what I've seen in other ports,
and what I've seen in the documentation but it does not function in


Now, my py-extended-threading module has not been put in the ports
tree yet (which may be the issue), but I'm getting a python
compilation error here, which leads me to suspect the dependency is
not being checked:
