the key to fixing dependency issues is to have a good reproducible
example. So if you have an example tree where its not working, then
you can create a compressed tarball of the entire tree (yes, its very
large) and put it somewhere I can get it. Please don't email it to
me. Alternatively, if you have a tested, reliable way to reproduce the
problem from a clean tree then let me know what that is.

I've fixed quite a few dependency bugs, and only one turned out to be
a bug in waf (which was fixed very quickly by Thomas). The bugs are
far more commonly because of a implicit dependency we have that is not
made clear in our build rules. Our build rules get quite complex at
times, and sometimes we get them wrong.
