OK, this can explain perl5-5.16 issue, because I have this in host's 

DEFAULT_VERSIONS= perl=5.16 mysql=5.5m php=55 python=2.7 apache=2.4

## OptionsNG sets DOCS, EXAMPLES and NLS as default - we do not need them

But what about other silly dependecies like Git, Bzr, Subversion - it 
seems unrelated to me.

If it is known unfixable problem, shouldn't it be documentet i manpage 
BUGS section?

Anyway thanks for your work on this great tool.
