Thanks for the tip. The ming extension was in fact the culprit. Now
I'm guessing there must be a way to recursively analyze dependencies!

Anyway, IMHO the comment on the ming module should state clearly that
it requires a complete X server. Granted though, I shouldn't have
selected that extension anyway, I did by mistake, so maybe if I knew
what it was it would have been obvious, who knows...
